On Tuesday 10 April, BBC Breakfast will broadcast from its new home in MediaCityUK, Salford Quays, for the first time.
The flagship programme will continue to be presented by a team well known to the Breakfast audience, with Bill Turnbull and Susanna Reid and Louise Minchin and Charlie Stayt forming the main family of presenters.
Business presenter Stephanie McGovern and sports presenters Sally Nugent and Mike Bushell will continue in their current roles in Salford, while Carol Kirkwood will also remain part of the team, continuing to present Breakfast’s weather reports from London and locations across the UK, along with her other responsibilities with the Met Office.
Since the programme’s launch in October 2000 BBC Breakfast has established its position as an important part of the audience’s day. Broadcasting more than three hours of live news, sport and entertainment every day, Breakfast’s move to Salford comes during a hugely successful period as it continues to reach over 12 million viewers per week.
BBC Breakfast broadcasts daily from 6.00am on BBC One and the News Channel.
