Kevin Duala to host BBC Radio Merseyside breakfast show

BBC Radio Merseyside has hired Kevin Duala as the host of a new breakfast show, to replace Phil Munns.

Kevin, regular reporter on The One Show, presented the Sunday breakfast show on BBC Radio Sussex and Surrey before appearing on BBC Radio Merseyside covering for Snelly and Helen.

As part of the new show Kev will be joined by journalist Phil Cooper from the BBC Merseyside Newsroom and sports journalist Giulia Bould. She will bring all the sports headlines with Total Sport at Breakfast meaning more interviews, reports and insights to start the day.

Senior Content Producer Jess Robbins and Journalism Co-ordinator Claire Bryan remain in their current production roles at breakfast.

Kevin said: “It’s official! Dreams do come true. I’m beyond thrilled to be presenting the Breakfast Show on BBC Radio Merseyside. What an honour to wake up the best city in the world. This is our show, not my show – and I want you to be a massive part of it. I’m genuinely counting down the days… I can’t wait to get behind that microphone and say “good morning, Merseyside” for the very first time!

Phil Munns moves from the breakfast show to headline the weekend sports programme.

Ben Anderson, Radio Merseyside Executive Editor, said: “Kev is born and raised in Toxteth and loves the people and places who make Merseyside what it is. He’s Merseyside through and through, and we’re working hard on a show that has our brilliant Radio Merseyside listeners firmly front and centre.

“With Giulia Bould launching Total Sport at Breakfast and with Paul Salt continuing to build the Total Sport Merseyside brand across the week, and now with the addition of Phil Munns bringing all of the weekend sport action, our audience are getting the very best from their favourite Merseyside voices.”

Kevin starts his new show on Monday 10th June.
