NEWS presenter Wesley Smith is to hit Oxfordshire's airwaves.

Radio station BBC Oxford has signed up the former ITV Thames Valley Tonight anchorman for a regular Saturday afternoon show, starting on June 13.

Mr Smith said: "The show is really exciting and I am delighted to be joining the team at BBC Oxford."

The former TV presenter, who was made a casualty of station cutbacks in February, was invited to co-present a Bank Holiday special at the station with BBC TV news anchor Geraldine Peers.

Wesley Smith will be on BBC Oxford 95.2FM, between noon and 2pm from June 13.
