BBC Radio Cambridgeshire is looking for new talent to front an evening show launching on September 19.

The new programme, known as The Residency, will broadcast every Wednesday night at 7pm from September 19.

A BBC Radio Cambs spokesman said: “The focus is on the people and places that make Cambridgeshire an exciting and fascinating place to live and all expert training will be provided so experience isn’t necessary.”

David Harvey, BBC Radio Cambridgeshire editor, said: “The new shows emphasise our commitment to our local communities, not only throughout daytime hours, but the evening as well. “We’re delighted to be able to feature more local voices and more local stories while celebrating new broadcasting talent.

“The right candidates don’t necessarily need to be experienced broadcasters but should be enthusiastic about radio and where they live.

“The station already has some great people on board and will launch with Peterborough poet, Keely Mills, and her stories of the characters that swim at the Peterborough Lido. “Another future presenter of The Residency will be, Amir Suleman, who currently hosts a show on Peterborough’s Salaam Radio.”
