There's a new look to mornings on BBC Radio Norfolk in 2010.

Following Chris Goreham's popular breakfast show, Nick Conrad starts a new show on BBC Radio Norfolk at 9am until 11am from Monday, 4 January, where he will be discussing what matters to Norfolk the most.

Every Monday to Thursday Nick will be drawing on his experience as a political journalist by picking up the stories of the day and delving further. The programme will be informative, interactive and insightful.

As well as a daily phone-in, Nick will be putting the county's movers and shakers under the spotlight and will tackle Norfolk's consumer issues. He will also continue to host his entertaining Sunday show from 12pm.

Then from 11am - 1pm, Karen Buchanan will bring her smart and sassy style to a new show.

She'll draw on the county's wealth of experts to look at what to wear, what to eat and how to look after your health and relationships.

She'll continue with the old favourites like gardening and antiques, but will get out and about in Norfolk and take a look at some of the county's best-kept secrets.

Bringing fun to a Friday and getting you started for the weekend is everyone's favourite Treasure Quest stars David and Becky - be prepared for a whole lot of screaming and laughter from 9am - 11am.

Stephen Bumfrey then continues his lively afternoon show at 1pm each day followed by Matthew Gudgin's drive-time show from 4pm.

David Clayton, editor of BBC Radio Norfolk, believes it's an exciting time for mid-morning radio.

"We're delighted to have signed Nick Conrad to the presentation team for what is going to make very exciting and 'must listen to' radio as we enter a new year," he said.

Saturday Breakfast

There's also a new look to Saturday Breakfast.

After 25 years of being the Saturday morning voice on BBC Radio Norfolk, Look East presenter Stewart White has decided to have a well-deserved lie-in while Inside Out's David Whiteley takes the helm on Saturday, 9 January 2010.

Stewart joined the BBC in Norwich back in 1984 as the main presenter on Look East and straightaway took over Saturday mornings on the radio.

Thousands of brides have been caught with his surprise Bride of the Week calls and have answered Stewart's regular proposal question, "Was it a one knee job?"

"The radio show has been hugely enjoyable but I am looking forward to not setting the alarm clock on a Saturday morning!" said Stewart.

"Stewart is a consummate professional who has delivered a very popular radio show each Saturday for as long as many of us can remember," said David Clayton.

"He'll be a hard act to follow and I really hope he enjoys his extra couple of hours in bed with the papers," he added.

David Whiteley will take over from Nanette Aldous and start his show an hour earlier than Stewart, beginning at the crack of dawn at 6am.

The change won't affect Stewart's work on Look East where he can still be seen five days a week at 6.30pm on BBC One.
