Former BBC television news presenter Julia George co-hosts BBC Radio Kent's Breakfast show with John Warnett.

When Julia joined BBC Radio Kent, it was a homecoming for the former Sevenoaks school girl to her first love, radio.

Julia grew up in Tonbridge and initially arrived at BBC Radio Kent after starting her journalism career at stations BBC Sussex & Surrey.

London beckoned and Julia became GLR's (now BBC London) drive time presenter.

An open screen test for a new presenter on South East Today's predecessor, Newsroom South East, saw her move into television and from 2001 she travelled the length and breadth of the country for BBC Breakfast.

Now a mum, Julia is thoroughly enjoying being behind a radio desk again in her home county: "I am so excited, not just about working in radio again, but about working in radio in Kent. All my family are still here and working in Kent means I get to spend more time with them."

"I love television journalism, especially live presenting, but there's something special about radio. It is much more honest and straight forward; you have a much closer relationship with people. I used to stand in for Vanessa Feltz on BBC London and it was one of the most interesting and exciting things I have done at work.

"John and I just want to have fun while giving the listener good, entertaining radio, that's hugely important to me."

You can listen to Julia on-air each weekday morning from 7am until 10am.
