The BBC Asian Network has revealed its latest change to the new schedule – a new weekend breakfast show with popular presenter Amanda Hussain.
The ‘Weekend Breakfast Show’ as the programme is be called will launch this Saturday (15th July) on the BBC Asian Network, offering a fresh take on the week۪s news, music, sport and gossip to strengthen the BBC Asian Network۪s mainstream appeal.
The ‘Weekend Breakfast’ has been fronted by various presenters since Anita Rani was shifted to host the network’s ‘Mid-Morning Discussion Show’ back in April.
New features on the ‘Weekend Breakfast’ include:
-Bitch Hollywood/Bitch Bollywood, offering the inside track on showbiz gossip from Los Angeles and Mumbai
-How Hot am I gives listeners the opportunity to put themselves forward for romantic scrutiny
-Ask the Family tests listeners۪ knowledge of their own siblings or parents in explosive and hilarious ways
Amanda, a former presenter of Network East, is already familiar to BBC Asian Network listeners, having guest presented across the station since its launch.
Amanda Hussain says, I۪ve been working in TV for some time now and I۪ve missed the excitement and freedom of live radio. It۪s an important step for BBC Asian Network to be reaching out to wider audiences and it۪s great to be part of that_ And I can۪t wait to wake up with lots of new people who don۪t know me yet!
