Meanwhile the Ipswich-based station has reviewed its presenter rota and brought in a new face too.
Familiar face Nick Risby hands over the mike to new host for drive time, Roger Woods, who arrives after entertaining the Armed Forces on British Forces Broadcasting Service.
Rachel Sloane has stepped into Terry Baxter's shoes on the lunchtime consumer programme, whose move to press officer for Ipswich Town sparked the change around that kicked off today.
Presenter of mid-morning Leslie Dolphin has meantime been lined up to front a top secret new radio format for the weekend.
"We have taken the opportunity to reinvigorate the programmes and to make some new changes that the listeners are really going to enjoy," said a spokesman.
