Spanswick returning to host BBC Radio York’s breakfast show


Georgey Spanswick is returning to BBC Radio York to present the breakfast show.

Spanswick hosted the programme until February 2017, during which time it was named Best Local Breakfast Show at the Aria Awards.

She’s replacing Kay Crewdson, who left Radio York just before Christmas for a new life in America. Spanswick will start on Tuesday May 29th.

Spanswick said: “Gosh I can’t wait to set my alarm clock for silly o’clock again. What’s not to like about starting work at five am?”

Spanwick had left Radio York to present the All England Evening Programme, which is currently broadcast across the BBC’s local radio stations, but will now be focusing on Radio York.

She said: “My body clock is going to be all over the place. I’ll be working at the other end of the day again. Despite the early starts, I had a riot working on the Breakfast Show on Radio York. I love the station and the listeners. We even won awards, you know? So I can’t wait to get back on Breakfast.”

Joe Pignatiello, managing editor at BBC Radio York, added: “I can’t wait for Georgey to get back to waking up North Yorkshire as only she can. She’s a force of nature and I’m sure our listeners are going to love having her back at breakfast on BBC Radio York.”

Johnny I’Anson, currently weekend breakfast presenter on BBC Radio Leeds, will take over the Local Radio evening show. He currently deputises for Spanswick.
