Celebrity interviewer Antonia Brickell and top comedian Toby Foster hit the airwaves next week in a brand new breakfast show for BBC Radio Sheffield.


Antonia & Toby at Breakfast goes live for the first time on Monday 20 September at 7.00am and Radio Sheffield Acting Editor Angus Moorat believes it will be worth making the switch in the mornings.


He said: "We are really excited about the new programme. Antonia and Toby have a great on air presence and we are sure the show is going to be unmissable for people in the area.


"This is not the first time the pair have worked together – Toby often dropped in on Antonia's show and after seeing how well the two sparked off each other we gave them a breakfast slot together last Christmas.


"It's clear they will be a great duo for a prime time slot talking with guests and listeners about what matters to the people of South Yorkshire and north-east Derbyshire.


"Antonia and Toby will now be together every weekday for three hours between seven and ten am with all the local news, sport, traffic and weather."


Antonia, 31, first made her mark in radio at GWR and Q103 in Cambridge, then moved to BBC Radio Northampton where she was given an evening slot and, later, the Breakfast Show to present.


She started at Radio Sheffield in March last year and has become known for tackling big names and celebrities such as Sir Paul McCartney, Sir Cliff Richard and Derek Jacobi.


Toby is one of the country's leading stand up comedians and is one of the regular cast in Peter Kay's Pheonix Nights.


He has broadcast his own show on Radio Sheffield for two and a half years during which time he has received a nomination in the best presenter category in both the 2003 and 2004 Sony British Radio Awards.


Toby is a founder member of the Comedy Store's Men@Work team, a weekly topical show at the Manchester Comedy Store, and can often be found warming up audiences for BBC television shows such as The National Lottery programmes.


Antonia & Toby at Breakfast is part of a brand new schedule for Radio Sheffield that can be found at 104.1, 88.6 and 94.7 FM.
