UK: Signal 1 has announced that Emma Louise Jones will be joining the station in mid-October to co-present the breakfast show alongside current host Foxy (John Fox). Northwich born and bred, Emma joins the Stoke based station from Viking FM where she has presented the flagship breakfast show for the last two years.
The main presenter of Leeds United TV each week, Emma has a Degree and Masters in Broadcast Journalism. A keen charity contributor, she has undertaken charitable tasks including staying silent for 24 hours, bungee jumping and dressing up as a man for an entire day.
Group Programme Director for Wireless Group’s local stations, Terry Underhill said:
– Our morning show at Signal 1 is the most listened to local breakfast show in the area by miles and Emma’s local knowledge, enthusiasm and talent will help the show continue to grow even further.
– Having grown up listening to Signal breakfast, I can’t believe I’m going to work at the station that’s been part of my life for so many years. I can’t wait to get on-air with Foxy and start chatting with listeners in Staffordshire and Cheshire.
The Signal 1 Breakfast Show with Foxy and Emma starts 6am – 10am on Monday October 16 and can be found at www.signal1.co.uk and locally on DAB
