Back in November 2017 Tina Bettison and Sue Jackson stepped away from the microphones, leaving June with the unenviable task of finding two new co- presenters to fill their shoes.
Fortunately Rachel, Rosalyn and, most recently, Claire were all more than happy to do just that and, after a brief sabbatical, Girls Around Town returned to the airwaves in March 2018…
Although Tina’s been in the studio on the other side of the desk at least twice since then, next weekend will see all three friends re-united for the first time when both she and Sue drop by for a catch up.
And Ros will be joining the party too!
They’ll be reminiscing about the old days – remember all those Chocolate Moments, not to mention that valuable advice on how to choose the right shade of lippy? – before bringing June and Ros up to date on what’s been keeping them busy over the last two years.
Cast your mind back to early last month and you may remember Claire Clements popping into the studio to talk about how she helps clients achieve Blissful Balance in their lives.
Or even further back to the beginning of June, when she made her first appearance on the show to talk about the power of Positive Pants…
Guests on Girls Around Town invariably say how much they enjoy spending their Sunday mornings with June Rachel and Rosalyn but Claire went one step further and, to everyone’s delight, offered to get involved on a regular basis.
So meet the new girl in town – from next month, she’s joining the team as a regular guest presenter!
Claire will be making her debut in November, sharing some of her own thoughts on the topics of the day and giving June a helping hand when they talk to guest Amanda Stone about Christmas-themed events and workshops at Hanwell Estates.
Dates are already in the diary for her to be back in December and January and hopefully they’ll be just the first of many.
But for now, make sure you tune in to 107.8FM or listen online between 10am and 12 noon on Sunday 10 November to hear her make that debut.
And, in the meantime, find out more about Claire here…
The show may be off air at the moment but there’s a lot going on behind the scenes as the Girls Around Town get ready to return…
If all goes to plan, they’ve something extra special in mind for the first show to make sure things get off to a sparkling start and – headline news – there’s another new girl in town!
After a fond farewell to Tina, who left the show in November to concentrate on her new business BELOVED@THE BARN, Rachel Repper is joining the team full time. Local theatre-goers will know her as one of the leading lights of the Robin Hood Theatre and if you’re a regular listener, you’ll have heard her as a guest on Girls Around Town several times this year. So who better to become the latest co-presenter when GAT#2 takes to the airwaves in a few weeks’ time?
In other news so far, the guest list for early spring is growing, the new feature Sunday Supplement is coming together nicely and ideas for informative and entertaining interviews and discussions are flowing thick and fast. There’ll be plenty of opportunities for you to get involved in the conversations too, with invitations to have your say on everything from vegan cookery to big knickers via the Facebookpage and Twitter feed.
In the meantime, if you’re making a list of resolutions for the New Year, here’s one more to add. Watch this space for confirmation of the relaunch date and be sure to put Sundays from 10am to 12 noon in your diary for the rest of 2018…
