LOCAL radio broadcaster Rachel Sloane has left BBC Radio Suffolk to develop her own company.

Ms Sloane, whose last regular programme on BBC Radio Suffolk was on the Easter weekend, previously worked for Radio Orwell and Saxon Radio. She has been a presenter and producer on BBC Radio Suffolk for 17 years, most recently working on the Weekend Breakfast shows.

“It will be strange, for the first time in 28 years, not to be planning a programme,” she said.

“But I have decided to reclaim my weekend social life and cancel the 4am alarm call.

“The work of Rachel Sloane Partnerships Ltd is growing all the time and I think it is time to concentrate on that now. Although I will miss the BBC Radio Suffolk team and all my listeners, I hope to still be called upon occasionally when the regular presenters go on holiday, or to help with special projects.”
