Free Radio today announced that Jo Jesmond is to return in the New Year.
She previously hosted the breakfast show for eight years until 2010, and will return to the station in January to launch the “Jo & Ed” show, with Ed Nell – who currently hosts afternoon drive.
Jo left the station before the birth of her second child and says: “I really can’t wait to come back to the show and start waking you lovely people up in the morning – I’m so excited!’
Ed said: “I’ve known Jo for years and we get on like a house on fire. She’s so much fun and I’m really looking forward to getting started.’
Jo & Ed start on Wednesday 3rd January and Free Radio Regional Content Director Mike Newman said: “To have Jo back on the radio is something of a dream come true – she’s effortlessly entertaining and I know how much good feeling Jo still has around here. With the equally talented Ed Nell by her side, I can’t wait to hear the show in 2018″.
