GLEN Hunt has been announced as Tower FM’s new breakfast show host.

From Tuesday, May 27, listeners will once again be able to wake up to Glen as he takes over the reins from Simon Morykin, who has moved to Hallam FM in Sheffield to present mid-mornings.

The former Real Radio north west presenter, who used to host the breakfast show with Lorna Bancroft, left before the station was re-branded as Heart.

Glen says: "I can’t wait to start hosting the breakfast show on Tower FM – I feel very privileged to work every day right here in the North West, and there’s nothing I love more than being on the radio."

Terry Underhill, Group Programme Director for UTV Media said: “We’re thrilled that Glen Hunt is going to present the breakfast show on Tower FM – we know the listeners will love him and the new show is really shaping up to be great.”

Join Glen from Tuesday May 27 from 6am until 10am.
