Iain Lee has begun presenting the breakfast show at BBC Three Counties Radio.

He was chosen for the job after "a fantastic listener response" following a month-long slot as guest presenter.

Iain first found fame in 1998 presenting The 11 O'Clock Show on Channel 4, before moving to its breakfast show Ri:se.

He has also presented on Absolute Radio, XFM, Capital Radio and BBC Radio 5 Live.

Other credits include presenting on BBC 6Music, BBC Radio 4 and Sky One's podcast for Lost.

The show in the 06:00 - 09:00 slot looks at the news stories making the headlines across the region and further afield, with input from listeners, who are invited to join in and discuss the topical issues of the day.

The programme also includes news, sports, weather and travel updates.

'Real challenge'

Iain said he was "very excited" about his new role.

"It was a real challenge filling in for a month recently, but one that I thoroughly enjoyed," he said.

"I am so happy that I am now presenting the show on a full-time basis, waking up Beds, Herts and Bucks."

Managing editor Laura Moss said: "I'm really pleased and excited to be working with Iain.

"We had a fantastic response from listeners when Iain joined us as a guest presenter on the breakfast show in July.

"Iain is a popular broadcaster with a proven track record in interactive radio and I know he'll get Beds, Herts and Bucks talking about the stories that matter every morning."
