“Harvey is a great presenter who will add his wealth of experience and Essex knowledge to our on-air team. Conor Knight is exactly the type of presenter we need in the evening, full of energy and a love for new music. Scarlett will sound very much at home with the chilled tunes after 10, whilst Stand-up comedian turned presenter Ross McGrane will set up the weekend in Essex with his own unique style.

“Rebecca joining us as News Editor is a great result for us as she will bring a lot of valuable experience to our news team in Essex.

“Jack and Marky T add the finishing touches to a new look schedule at Radio Essex, it’s great to be able to work with new talent and help them develop at the station.”
