Weekday schedule shuffle at BBC Radio Scotland

It’s all change at BBC Radio Scotland with new presenters on weekday breakfast, lunchtime and drivetime.

Good Morning Scotland will see long-standing anchor Gary Robertson joined by Senior Broadcast Journalist Laura Maxwell, replacing Hayley Millar who is moving to lunchtime for a new show with Mhairi Stuart called Lunchtime Live.

The current lunchtime host John Beattie will then move to a new two-hour drivetime show.

Gary Smith, BBC Scotland’s Head of News, says: “Our three daytime news programme will all have a very distinctive feel and style to them, reporting the news that matters to the Radio Scotland audience in a tone that’s warm and accessible.

“Each of the three pillars of our schedule – breakfast, lunch and drive – will be hosted by presenters with years of journalism experience behind them. These changes ensure that our station remains at the forefront of delivering agenda-setting content that showcases radio journalism at its finest.”

BBC Radio Scotland says the schedule changes are likely to begin in the next few months.

      Really, radio Scotland is overloaded with giggling females both on News and music programmes. By all means, employ female presenters but please! Be choosy.
