Lester’s radio link may be revived

A RETURN to Radio Forth has not been ruled out for one of its presenters who has just accepted a redundancy deal from the station.

Diane Lester – who combined presenting duties on Forth2 with working on the station’s website – signed off for perhaps the last time just a few days ago. But the managing director of Radio Forth, Adam Findlay, has told Spike that a return for the station veteran remains a possibility.

Last week, official listening figures from RAJAR, saw an increase in audience numbers for Forth2. Steadily, it has been re-establishing a separate identity from its sister station, Forth One, which is clearly pitched at a young, chart-orientated audience. Forth2 is now more about classic pop.
