Essex radio duo Martin Day and Su Harrison have celebrated 20 years since going on-air together in the county.
They were first drafted together on Essex FM on September 11th 2000, before the station was rebranded to Heart in 2009.
Due to networking at local radio stations and cuts, Martin and Su were then left without a home in May 2019 before Radio Essex signed them up.
Speaking about their time on-air together, Su observed: “I can’t believe I’ve managed to put up with him for this long. Other than holidays, the birth of my daughter, and the break we had last year we’ve probably spent more time together than most couples.
“I’m having the best time here, it feels like home. Twenty years is a long time and I have to say working with Martin is great fun (most of the time).”
Talking about Radio Essex, Martin added: “The people of Essex have been so kind in taking Su and I into their homes and cars for twenty years.
“I really can’t believe those years have gone and yet we still have so much more to discuss with you all. Thanks to my Northern co-host for the years of laughs and for a laugh that I’m only just getting used to… it does take a while!
“We hope to spend many more years in the privileged position of waking up our county on Radio Essex and thank you all for the loan of your ears.”
