Shay and Sunny Grewal are announced as new BBC Asian Network Breakfast Show presenters
The husband and wife team will take up the reins of Weekend Breakfast (7am-9am) on Saturday 4 December. They follow in the footsteps of Tommy Sandhu and Noreen Khan who have moved on to present the Breakfast and Drivetime shows on the station.
The couple, who found fame as members of the Grewal family in the TV series, are newcomers to radio but the show promises to be a great two hours to wake-up to, with a lively mix of music and chat. As well as hearing the interesting and quirky stories from the morning papers, the show will see the couple airing their opinions in the feature ‘He Said, She Said’ – showing how a married couple can have different views on every subject, from movies and marriage to food and TV. Audiences will also hear their favourite tracks and the interesting stories behind them.
Shay says: “Sunny and I are very excited about Weekend Breakfast and bringing something unique to the BBC Asian Network – a married desi couple.”
Sunny adds: “It’s going to be the perfect start to the day, with the best music and chat and something for everyone! We’re looking forward to giving listeners the chance to get involved and talk to us.”
