Park Radio DJ Chris Moyse signs off after two years
For more than two years, thousands of listeners across the Waveney Valley have tuned in to the dulcet tones of veteran broadcaster Chris Moyse every weekday morning.
Last Monday, Park Radio’s managing director took to the air for his final 6am to 9am Breakfast Show at the Diss-based station.
“It’s been a lot of fun,” said Mr Moyse.
“I’ve had a wonderful time and the audience have been very kind about the programme. It has been such a privilege to share the early morning with our listeners.”
Having grown the audience in the early hours with a mixture of news, local information, music and fun, Mr Moyse became one of the best-known voices in south Norfolk, entertaining listeners with his self-deprecating humour.
He now hands the breakfast morning baton over to fellow broadcaster Jono Abel, and will begin doing the Mid Morning show on Thursdays and Fridays.
“Jono will be brilliant and carry on all the good work each day,” added Mr Moyse.
“We have come a very long way since 2010. Park Radio has an incredible team both on and off air, and it continues to grow and develop.
“It’s a wonderful legacy to see so many of the next generation of broadcasters wanting to get involved in the station.”
Mr Abel, who took on his first Breakfast Show last Tuesday, added: “I’m really looking forward to getting everyone up and ready for their day.
“It’s a fantastic opportunity to take on the Breakfast Show and I’m really looking forward to waking up the Waveney Valley with some great music and fun.”
Mr Moyse will now shift his focus towards several key projects at Park Radio, which broadcasts out of Diss Youth and Community Centre, in Shelfanger Road, including setting up satellite studios in both Harleston and Eye, organising more live outdoor broadcasts and reintroducing a number of youth programmes.
