Former Town 102 Breakfast Show presenter Wayne Bavin is getting a regular BBC Radio Suffolk Saturday mid-morning show from this weekend.
Wayne has started radio at BBC Tees when he was just 15 working weekends for work experience, then went to being on air in Norfolk, Wolverhampton, Sunderland, Manchester, Leeds and Wales. Wayne also spent the last three years hosting weekday breakfast in Ipswich on Town 102.
Peter Cook, Station Editor at BBC Radio Suffolk, says, “Wayne is the perfect fit for mid-morning radio on Saturdays! Wayne has a great personality, bubbly character and is a full of energy. He loves Suffolk and loves talking to the people who make it tick. It’s just what you need to help you on your way on a Saturday morning.”
Wayne says, “I love being part of this community Suffolk is, without doubt, one of the best most beautiful counties in the country, and my new Saturday morning show 9am-12noon every Saturday will showcase this. We will be live from Suffolk’s biggest and smallest events each weekend, we will be chatting to the talented and inspirational people that make our county great.
“One of my first shows will see me getting out and about around schools in Suffolk getting their take on the county today (which will make you laugh) and we will bring you some of the quirky stories from our county. I can’t wait to get started and I never ever take this job for granted it’s a privilege to be in people’s lives, from their cars, homes and workplace.”
