Jason is the founder and Managing Director of Radio Hartlepool, and it took over ten years to bring a full-time radio station to the town, and he finally got his lifetime wish back in 2008. Make sure you tune into the biggest and brightest 'Breakfast Show' every weekday from 7, where Jason and the team give a lively mix of chat, great music and topical talk. Jason loves spending time chatting to local people around the town and can often be found in the local shopping centre having a cup of tea and signing the odd autograph!

Lee presents 'The Morning Show' every weekday between 10am and 1pm, including 'Tunes To Chew To', where your favourite songs get played.  If you're a fan of the 80's, make sure you join Lee on a weekend for 'Kick Up The 80's, every Sunday between 10am and 1pm (repeated the following Saturday afternoon at 2pm). Lee has been with Radio Hartlepool since the full-time launch back in 2008 and describes himself as 'quirky', 'thoughtful' and 'proud to be from Hartlepool'. His favourite food is Chips and he loves spending time at Seaton Carew, and he is also quite lazy, as it means he doesn't have to walk far!    

Jon co-presents the Weekday Breakfast Show with Jason and is a fountain of knowledge. There's rarely a subject that he doesn't know a fact about or has an opinion about! In his spare time Jon enjoys spending a long weekend at the caravan with his elderly Mam and is a an expert on amateur radio as well.

Graeme gets you in the mood to 'Relax' every Monday to Thursday at 10pm by playing you some inspiring, chilled out songs. He is retired after spending many years as a taxi driver.

Mike has always fancied having a go at radio and he is joining us to present a number of one-off shows to be aired on Bank Holidays.   He is a big fan of gaming and loves those old arcade games of our our youth!

We are proud to welcome back Stu Leighton to Radio Hartlepool.  Stu is our new presenter of the weekday 'Afternoon Show' and 'Big Drive Home'. Stu is a big fan of rally car racing and he is often tinkering away under the bonnet in his spare time as well as DJ'ing at local clubs.

Cheryl has a great bubbly, upbeat personality and presents 'The Evening Show' (Mon to Thurs 7-10pm) and 'PartyZone' (Fri, Sat 7pm-Midnight). 

Jack and Tom present 'The Northern Beat' every Sunday at 10pm. They scour the North of England for new unsigned music to play, from a variety of genres. In their spare time, they enjoy live music as well as DJ'ing in a local club.

Les takes a look back through the decades with Solid Gold Sunday playing those musical memories between 2 and 6pm. When Les isn't on your local station, he drives lorries for a living.

Little Stu co-presents 'The Breakfast Show' every Friday and he loves his music and is not shy about giving his opinion too! Stuart is visually impaired and is always joined by his guide dog in the studio.

Dan is with us every Sunday Evening from 7pm with some great pop facts and features, including your chance to guess the 'Mystery year'. Having spent several years working in hospital radio, Dan was more than happy to join us in glorious FM and he loves spending time with his family when he gets the chance.  


We welcome Kenny to Radio Hartlepool as the new presenter of 'Sunday Breakfast'. He is a big fan of radio in general and after making quite a few guest appearances with Jason, we felt he should have his own show.
