Chris Hubbard, Breakfast Newsreader:
Chris joined BOB fm in the spring of 2010. He's been in radio ever since he was a lad though.
He spent the 4 years before as a producer at a big London station and worked at radio stations in Nottinghamshire, Wiltshire, Lincolnshire and Yorkshire - until we tempted him out into the Hertfordshire countryside for a breath of fresh air!
- Chris can be heard reading the news during BOB's Breakfast and throughout the day.
- You can also catch him every Saturday from 9am on BOB's Interactive Brunch.
Simon Kelsey, Weekend Newsreader:
- The unsung hero of BOB fm's News Team, Simon can be heard reading the news on BOB fm every Saturday and Sunday.
