Commenting on the new show Midlands 103’s Group Programme Director Will Faulkner said: “We’re delighted to be launching a brand new show on Midlands 103. Brian is a very familiar voice to Midlands 103 listeners and we’re delighted to offer Brian his first show in his own name with us and believe it is a show that will really grab listener’s attention.
“One of Brian’s best qualities as a presenter is his ability to engage and entertain listeners and the new show format will really bring out these skills.
“This is a very exciting time for Midlands 103 as we continue to grow our market share. The Saturday Beat is yet another addition to our already strong weekend schedule and the show offers a brilliant variety of music, entertainment and sport which we feel is perfect for Saturday evenings.”
Speaking to RadioToday, Brian said he is delighted to take on the new show: “I’m thrilled to be joining the Midlands 103 on-air team. I’ve been involved with the station coming up on seven years in various capacities from reporter to cover presenter so to get my own show is brilliant.
“Over the years Midlands has always been great in offering me opportunities to develop as a presenter and am very grateful for this really exciting opportunity on my home station.
“What we hope to bring listeners is a top quality music, entertainment and sports show which we hope will really resonate with listeners. I’ve always felt that Saturday evenings is a great time for radio with people feeling more relaxed and there is a captive audience that we hope will like, listen and engage with the show.”
