Lee Everest, the current breakfast show host, is moving to mid-mornings. He said: “It’s been a joy waking up in Brighton and Hove, and I’m thrilled to hand over the reins to a legend like Mike.

“I’m eager to embark on my new mid-morning slot, which will continue to spotlight local guests and issues, alongside interactive listener features and the latest news updates. And yes, I’m looking forward to those lie-ins!”

James Crawley, Chairman of Regency Radio said: “We have an amazing relationship with Mike, assisting in the production and distribution of The Heritage Chart and we are thrilled to welcome him to the schedule on Regency Radio. His expertise and flair are unmatched, and we can’t wait for our audience to start their days with one of the true greats of broadcasting. It will also be exciting to hear great new music from heritage artists in this prime-time slot. The show will be being broadcast live from the Regency Radio Studios every morning.”

Mike Read added: “Having worked with the team behind Regency Radio for some time now, I am delighted to take over their Breakfast Slot broadening and growing our Heritage Chart Radio audience and bringing this amazing music to a wider audience.

“Regency Radio has established itself as a leading independent station in Brighton and Hove on DAB, and wider across its web, app and smart speaker streams and I look forward to introducing their audience to unique new music that they might not get from other radio stations.”

The station is available on DAB in Brighton and online.
