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."
