Former Guernsey Press journalist Rosie Allsopp has joined Island FM to present the breakfast show with veteran host James Bentley.

James currently hosts the show with Matthew Leach but this show will come to an end on Friday 28th May as Matt leaves the station to pursue a new career in gardening.

The new show ‘The Big Bailiwick Breakfast with James and Rosie’ will start the following Monday.

Rosie Allsopp, who has previously worked at the Guernsey Press, will present news bulletins on the show as well as co-hosting with James.

Speaking about the appointment, James Bentley, said: “Rosie brings huge amounts of news experience along with a wicked sense of humour and great banter.

“I’m excited to bring a fresh new sound to Guernsey’s biggest breakfast show..”

Rosie Allsopp added: “I’ve listened to Island FM for years so to be getting behind the mic with James is going to be loads of fun and a dream come true!”

“Island FM is a fantastic station, with a huge audience and a reputation to match and I can’t wait for listeners to join us each morning as we play the bailiwick’s biggest songs with great competitions and all the news you need.”

James Bentley added: “Big thanks to my outgoing partner in crime Matthew for his time manning the breakfast show newsdesk… he’ll be missed but we’ve got a worthy replacement with Rosie!”
