I’m delighted to let you know that Jo Russell is joining us.
Jo is one of the best-loved commercial radio presenters outside London (she is the lead player in the ‘Jo and Twiggy’ breakfast show which has dominated its East Midlands market for years) . You may recognise that show’s name. Every Sony and Arqiva judge will – it has won major awards year after year, so it’s great to be able to offer Jo the national platform she deserves.
Jo will be hosting some early breakfast programmes and weekend mid mornings. Her arrival means we’ll be waving farewell to JK and Joel later in the year, as they disappear to do yet more TV (and probably more radio stuff elsewhere too soon, given how much they love it). Sadly, though, this also means that Robin Burke will not be with us on a regular basis going forward after some great efforts at the crack of dawn in the last few months – and almost seven years at Golden Square. Robin- thanks for all you’ve done.
