Stephanie Hirst is to land a radio show on BBC


The transgender broadcaster is moving forward in her career and she makes history as the first openly transgender woman to host a full-time local radio show on BBC. The popular Yorkshire radio presenter, who previously hosted the ‘Hirsty’s Daily Dose’ breakfast show on Capital FM Yorkshire, has to take a break in her radio career to transition into female, but three years later she comes back and she is even more successful than she used to be. The Stephanie Hirst Show, broadcast from 9 AM until 12 PM, will “celebrate all-things Yorkshire, mixing great music, entertainment and big-name guests”. Hirst says that she is really excited to finally come back where she belongs. Stephanie Hirst will present her first show on April 3. Sanjiv Buttoo, Editor of BBC Radio Leeds, said: “Stephanie is back – and she’s on Radio Leeds. She’s one of the biggest names in the radio industry and I’m really thrilled that she’s joining my team of talented producers, reporters and presenters. “We know she’s popular with our listeners from the fantastic feedback we’ve already received when she stood in on the mid-morning show last year and we can’t wait for her to join us.”
