BBC Hereford and Worcester will be dishing up a new daily breakfast for its listeners from January 20.

Breakfast presenter Mike George is to be joined by new co-presenter Clare Fischer from the radio station's studio in Hereford for the three-hour show every week-day.

Mike has been presenting the Breakfast Show for the last two years from the Worcester studios, but with Clare joining the team, it means that the station will broadcast from the Hereford studio at breakfast time.

Born and bred in Herefordshire, Clare started out her career at The Hereford Times, before joining BBC Hereford and Worcester in 1991 as a receptionist when her son was six months old.

She later moved on to become a reporter, presenter and producer for the station.

Now a mother of two, and living in Herefordshire, Clare says: "Broadcasting from the Hereford studio at breakfast time will mean a bigger profile across Herefordshire for the station together with more Herefordshire stories and coverage at a key time in our output.

"It's going to be a more local listen for people in the county.''
