New Saturday Breakfast presenter joins DAB radio station

The South West’s Goldmine

Legendary radio presenter, Chris Dinnis joins The South West’s Goldmine to host the DAB radio station’s ‘The Saturday Breakfast Show’.

Taking to the air from Saturday 6th March, Chris will be behind the mic from 8am – 10am, bringing music from the 50’s to the 80’s, local features and more to listeners of Cornwall’s only independently owned county-wide radio station.

Hailing from the south west, Chris brings a wealth of experience to the station including a music journalism career and 40 years spent on the radio. Interviewing everyone from David Dimbleby to Beyonce, he’s also performed in front of senior royals and hosted numerous outdoor headline acts.

With a passion for 60’s and 70’s music Chris is a perfect fit for The South West’s Goldmine. He says: “As soon as Goldmine arrived on our airwaves I was hooked with its combination of familiar voices and the music of my youth. I can’t tell you how excited I am to be joining the team and playing the songs that captured a generation. It’s also thrilling to once more be broadcasting in the region where my radio career began back in the 80’s.”

Dan Warren, managing director of The South West’s Goldmine says: “We’re thrilled to welcome Chris to the station. His vast experience in radio and knowledge of the area is a real asset and we know our Saturday morning listeners are in for a treat.

“As a regional radio station, we punch well above our weight. This is borne out by Chris’s appointment and our existing portfolio of presenters, as well as the events we attend – which range from the Oscars in LA and rugby at Twickenham, to county shows and local days. Our audience figures have increased on average by 42% during lockdown and with Chris now on the schedule we’re confident our numbers are only going to go grow.”

A final word from Chris: “The listeners and I are going to have a lot of fun on Saturday mornings, hopefully at the same time!”
