History of BBC Radio Cambridgeshire
BBC Radio Cambridgeshire originally broadcast from studios on Hills Road in Cambridge and are now at a base at the Cambridge Business Park on Cowley Road. With a largely rural county mixed with the academia of Cambridge, the diversity of Peterborough and the rural life from the fens, we work hard to create a listen that works across the patch to all walks of live – (Silver award winners in the recent national radio awards, Frank Gillard Awards).
With a stable currently boasting the likes of Benoit Stephenson, Dotty McLeod, Chris Mann, Jeremy Sallis, Sue Marchant and Thordis Fridriksson (to name but a few) we have a track record of attracting top talent to the station.
Chris Morris started his radio career at Radio Cambridgeshire and other national broadcasters who started their careers at the station include Matthew Amroliwala (BBC News 24), Nick Barraclough (BBC Radio 2), Ian Peacock (BBC Radio 4), Martin Popplewell (Sky News) and Mark Saggers (talkSPORT).
