A former BBC Three Counties Radio presenter is set to return to Hertfordshire’s airwaves in February.

Mike Naylor will be joining the team at community radio station, Mix 92.6, based in St Albans.

Fans will be able to tune into his show, packed full of local insights, on Sundays from 2pm to 4pm, starting on February 4.

The veteran presenter said: "Everyone has been very welcoming and encouraging.

"I hope to re-connect with the audience, and make a difference to their Sunday afternoons, by playing all the music they love, from the past and present."

His previous career milestones include stints with BBC Radio 5 Live, a host of BBC local radio stations, and a popular weekend music show at Three Counties.

Naylor, a long-time Hertfordshire resident, left BBC Local Radio due to 'recent changes'.

Mix 92.6 stepped in to link Naylor with his longstanding listeners and attract fresh ears.

The station is a not-for-profit entity that has been serving Hertfordshire on 92.6FM, apps and online for more than 30 years.

It aims to unite communities across the area and give locals and organisations a voice.

Andy Waterfield, programme controller at Mix 92.6, said: "We’re delighted that Mike has joined us.

"His experience over many years in local and national radio has already brought us new insights and ideas and we’re so happy to be able to reconnect Mike with his Hertfordshire listeners."
