New radio programme to promote Cambridgeshire to a national audience
The BBC is launching a radio show next month which will promote Cambridgeshire people and places to a national audience.
The all-local radio evening programme - ‘Mark Forrest’ - will start on BBC Radio Cambridgeshire on January 7 and will go out on all 39 regional radio stations in England and the Channel Islands.
It is the first time BBC local radio has syndicated one conversation across all its stations.
David Holdsworth, Controller of BBC English Regions, said: “We’re very excited by the potential of this programme which will bring together a wide range of voices from across BBC local radio.
“Expect a mix of great story telling, focusing on people and places, and debates on the issues that really matter to local communities, wherever they are.”
