Heart’s Tom Evans returns to radio with BBC Sussex

Former Heart presenter Tom Evans, from the Tom, Nicola and Jack breakfast show on Heart Sussex, is joining BBC Sussex.

Tom will cover a variety of programmes in the weeks ahead, including Breakfast and Afternoons.

Mark Carter, Assistant Managing Editor at BBC Sussex told RadioToday about the signing: “Tom lives in Sussex and loves the county. He’s proved to be an extremely popular presenter with the local audience over the past few years, so I’m delighted to offer this opportunity of a return to the airwaves.”

Commenting on the move, Tom said: I’m thrilled to be joining BBC Sussex and I’m really looking forward to getting back into the studio after some time off.

“I love broadcasting to this part of the world and to be doing so on the BBC is really exciting. I can’t wait to get started and it’s going to be lots of fun so make sure you tune in!”

Tom’s first show on BBC Sussex will be on Monday 29 July 12-4pm.

      Hi.
      Must say love Reading the various Posts and comments on you site. Radio has always been my favourite entertainment medium.
      Not being too harsh but a lot of Stations have changed their Presenters of late where there they didn’t need to!. (So much Garden leave.)
      Anyway keep up the good work.

    BBC Local Radio in original idea shocker of sticking on a laid off Heart person.

      Well at least it’s not the BBC “sticking on” a so-called celebrity with no radio experience.

        No, they go straight to national radio instead. Even at the BBC.

    From the independent local radio destroying Global machine has made it into local radio again, with the BBC investing more into local radio programming! Well done Tom! Looking forward to hearing you again!

    No one listens to BBC Surrey and very few to BBC Sussex. Sadly Mr Carter should spend more time volunteering on Radio Wey Valley in Hampshire as he has no idea what about the figures for either county and sadly his boss and him are letting the team down, Does anyone know the latest RAJAR figure figures for BBC Surrey and also the same for BBC Sussex. I would reckon the Surrey operation has one of the worst in the country and the arrogant management team in either Guildford or Brighton have no idea. I’ve offered help and its been ignored. But radical changes would be imposed on both stations and sadly Mr Carter would be reduced to his Saturday volunteering in Alton,, Hampshire.
