Former Capital Birmingham breakfast co-host Matilda New has been hired by Signal 1 to co-host Breakfast.
She will replace Emma Jones, who has moved on to focus on her television work and weekly Country Hits Radio programmes. Emma will continue to cover at the station during holidays.
Matilda said: “I can’t wait to join Foxy on Signal 1 breakfast and look forward to being part of the Signal team!”.
Signal 1 Content Controller, Simon Monk said: “We were determined to find a hugely talented co-host to work with Foxy and were delighted when Matilda became available”.
Group Programme Director for the former Wireless Group Local stations, Terry Underhill told RadioToday: “The minute we heard the pilot show that Foxy & Matilda put together, we knew this was a perfect pairing.
The breakfast show at Signal 1 added 10,000 listeners in the last RAJAR and we’re confident Matilda’s contribution will see further growth”.

This morning was my final breakfast show on Signal 1. I’ve had the best time working with Foxy – I’ve laughed every minute & loved every morning, but it’s time to switch off the 4.45am alarm. I have exciting things on the horizon and I cannot wait to share them all with you ? pic.twitter.com/msiRoH8XM8
