The former BBC Look East and BBC Essex presenter admitted she was “delighted” after it was announced she is set to start her new role presenting the breakfast programme on Monday, January 6.

She was today announced as the long-term successor to former presenter Terry Baxter, who left his position in July.

Ms George said: “I am delighted to be joining the team at BBC Radio Suffolk and really look forward to interacting with listeners each morning over a cup of coffee, for the big stories, interesting local interviews and informative conversation.”

Peter Cook, editor of BBC Radio Suffolk, said he was “absolutely thrilled” with the appointment of Ms George.

“She is an excellent broadcaster with a strong track-record,” he said.

“Etholle will host the flagship news and current affairs programme on the station.”

In a broadcasting career spanning 20 years, Ms George has presented the BBC Essex Breakfast Show, BBC Look East bulletins and is the presenter for BBC One’s Sunday Politics Show for the east.

BBC Radio Suffolk broadcasts on 95.5 (Lowestoft), 95.9 (Aldeburgh), 103.9 (Ipswich) and 104.6 (West Suffolk) on DAB Digital Radio and online via the BBC iPlayer.

  • Correction: BBC Radio Suffolk does NOT broadcast on DAB. I think Peter Cook would like it to, but so far he's been out of luck.

  • Will she be the youngest person there? I am 47 so not old enough for Radio Suffolk & will listen to them with everybody else during the next war.

  • Hopefully she’ll replace the dear old Scotsman Ronny Barber who I only ever catch half of what he’s saying... Having said that his choice of music is so much better than Mark (I only have Wham records) Murphy!

  • She is very good at her job providing the other female in the studio doesn't keep giggling and encourage her to do it.
