FOR those of you who listen to Capital FM on a morning you may have noticed the abrupt departure of breakfast duo Steve and Karen.
The comedy pair left after 10 years on air and due to contractual issues have been prevented from broadcasting to their loyal fans for six months.
Now they are back and your early morning drive can return to normal as they take to the airwaves on Metro Radio’s breakfast show.
Steve Furnell, 36, from North Shields, said: “I have to pinch myself every time I think about it. It’s a massive honour to be hosting the show I grew up listening to when I was a kid. This really was my boyhood dream, so it proves that if you work hard enough dreams can come true.”
His partner in crime Karen Wight, 34, from Heaton, added: “There are exciting times ahead for us and we cant wait to get on air. Having both grown up in the North East we love the area, and most of all the people, who, of course, have supported us for so long and we owe so much to.”
Make sure you tune in from 6am weekdays to get your Steve and Karen fix.
