Julie has announced a new appointment - see below an announcement from Julie: Meet Alina Jenkins, the voice behind the new BBC breakfast show in Dorset Breakfast in Dorset is a brand new local BBC radio programme dedicated to bringing you everything you need to start your day – whether you’re listening in the shower, on the school run, in the factory or office, on the farm, even on board one of the region’s fishing boats. Presenter Alina Jenkins will host the show live from Dorchester, and she couldn’t be more proud… “I’ve been with BBC Radio Solent for 12 years working on early breakfast, afternoons, news and also presenting for both the regional and national weather teams. But I’m relishing this new challenge and incredibly excited to be involved. Dorset is an area my family and I have always loved and we are very much looking forward to living and working in this beautiful county. I’m working with a brilliant team and we are eager to get out and about and find the stories that matter to Dorset residents. I won’t just be in the studio either - I hope to get around the county as much as I can too. Whatever your story, we want to hear it.” Broadcast on 103.8FM, Breakfast in Dorset will cover Weymouth, Portland, Dorchester, Wareham, Blandford Forum and many of the villages in between. The new show will be devoted to Dorset news, Dorset debate, and Dorset people…with the distinctive flavour and fun of local life. Every weekday from 6.30am, Alina Jenkins and the team will bring you all the latest news, putting decision-makers, bosses and politicians in the spotlight to get answers to the questions you’d want to ask – and hearing a vast range of the viewpoints and real-life stories that add to the richness of life in our county. They’ll also let you know what\'s happening in Dorset, give you the most up-to-date travel information and help you plan for the weather.
