Ex-Heart Wiltshire presenter Adam Ball switches to BBC Radio Oxford

At a time of increased job losses in radio, it’s good to hear that Heart Wiltshire’s drivetime presenter Adam Ball has landed the role of hosting the afternoon drive show on BBC Radio Oxford.

Adam joins the BBC ahead of Heart Wiltshire merging all programmes with three other stations to form Heart South West.

Before Heart, he worked at Oxford’s Fox FM presenting evenings, afternoons, drive and breakfast shows. Adam stayed with the station when it became Heart.

Adam’s no stranger to BBC Radio Oxford because it’s responsible for him being bitten by the radio bug when he visited the station back in 1997.

He says: “I am so excited to be broadcasting back in my home county, the place where all my family and friends still live, and the area I am so passionate about. All my memories growing up are here in Oxfordshire and I can’t wait to share my passion, love and stories with the rest of Oxfordshire once again, finally after 8 years away, I am home”.

Tim Boswell, Editor, BBC Radio Oxford commented: “I’m thrilled to bring Adam home to Oxford. He loves Oxfordshire and that’s what we’re all about.”
