Former Key 103 breakfast co-host Chelsea Norris is moving to the breakfast show at BBC Radio Manchester, up against her former co-host Mike Toolan.
Chelsea joined the BBC after leaving Bauer in 2016, first fronting a weekend show before becoming Drive Time presenter in February 2017.
She said: “I can’t believe I’ll have to set my alarm for four am again. That said I have a toddler so I never get enough sleep anyway. I’ve fitted in so well at Radio Manchester and I’m so grateful for the opportunities I’ve been given. The whole team is fantastic and the listeners make me laugh every day.
“I adore broadcasting at breakfast time. I love the idea of people tuning in at the start of the day as they’re driving to work or taking the kids to school. So despite the early starts, I can’t wait to wake Greater Manchester up every weekday morning.”
The change means current breakfast presenters Phil Trow moves to Drive Time and Alison Butterworth will return to Radio Lancashire where she previously worked.
BBC Radio Manchester Editor Kate Squire said: “Chelsea’s a radio star who shines brightly in Manchester. In a football-mad city like ours, who would have thought someone called Chelsea would prove so popular?!”
“She’s going to give our listeners a bright start to their day, full of fun and everything you need to know before you get to work.”
