Tim Boswell has been announced at the new permanent Editor for BBC Radio Oxford.
Tim has been managing the station on a temporary basis, but his move from his previous role at BBC Coventry & Warwickshire has now been confirmed.
Tim is celebrating 25 years in the radio industry – a career that has seen him working at BBC and commercial stations in programmes, management and news.
Tim said: “BBC Radio Oxford is a fantastic station – a hotbed of talent and personality from David Prever at Breakfast to Lilley Mitchell in the afternoon. We have lots of exciting plans for the next few months: ‘Radio Oxford Rocks Up’ will see our programmes broadcasting from four different communities across the county, and we are also looking at ways to work more closely with Oxfordshire’s thriving community groups.”
Head of BBC South, Jason Horton, said: “Tim’s passion for radio, and his experience in presenting and reporting, as well as managing radio stations, make him the ideal choice to lead BBC Radio Oxford. I’m confident Tim and his team will continue to deliver and develop the mixture of lively conversation, quality original journalism, sports coverage and music that audiences across the county know and love.”
