Chelsea Norris will be going head-to-head against her former show, as she moves to the Breakfast programme on Radio Manchester.
Norris has been hosting Drive Time on Radio Manchester since she left the Key 103 breakfast show in 2016.
“I can’t believe I’ll have to set my alarm for four am again. That said I have a toddler so I never get enough sleep anyway,” she said.
“I’ve fitted in so well at Radio Manchester and I’m so grateful for the opportunities I’ve been given. The whole team is fantastic and the listeners make me laugh every day.
“I adore broadcasting at breakfast time. I love the idea of people tuning in at the start of the day as they’re driving to work or taking the kids to school. So despite the early starts, I can’t wait to wake Greater Manchester up every weekday morning.”
The new show starts on March 19th and means that Phil Trow becomes Drive Time presenter, while Alison Butterworth returns to Radio Lancashire.
“Chelsea’s a radio star who shines brightly in Manchester. In a football mad city like ours, who would have thought someone called Chelsea would prove so popular?!” added BBC Radio Manchester Editor Kate Squire.
“She’s going to give our listeners a bright start to their day, full of fun and everything you need to know before you get to work.”
