LATE night listeners to BBC Radio Suffolk are in for a change following a shake up of presenters.

Keith Skues, who has hosted the 10pm to 1am slot for the last ten years is now set to present a new four hour show on Sunday nights between 9pm and 1pm.

The show will be broadcast from his home studio in Norfolk as John Peel previously did for Radio 1 from his Suffolk home.

From April, Nick Risby will take over from Keith hosting the late night show from Tuesdays to Fridays, between 10pm and 1pm.

"I'm looking forward to the new Sunday night show where I'll be exploring the shelves of my 300,000 record collection, most of which is vinyl."

Nick Risby, a familiar voice to late night BBC local radio listeners, has regularly stood in when Keith has been away for the last year. He has also presented programmes on BBC Radio Suffolk.

Nick said he was looking forward to presenting the show.

He said: "I think it's one of the best times of day to work on radio because the people listening aren't usually dashing around with hundreds of things on their mind. They have more time to get involved and enjoy the programme."
