Emma takes over faith show on Radio Norfolk

BBC Radio Norfolk’s Sunday Breakfast show will have a new presenter from Sunday November 7, exploring faith across the county.

Taking over from Louise Priest will be Emma Philpotts (right) who is also Station Sound Producer and has worked on several commercial radio stations across Norfolk.

Emma, who is an active member at Oak Grove Chapel in Norwich, and has done everything from youth work to making banner for the church building, said: “I am very excited to take on this new opportunity to explore faith in Norfolk. I will be looking at faith from a local perspective, but also seeing how national faith issues will affect us in the county.

“I am very interested to know about events that are happening around the county that revolve around faith - it could be an exciting speaker or conference that will be taking place, or a new initiative , project or charity that has a faith perspective. If it's happening in Norfolk, I want to hear about it.”

“I've lived in Norfolk most of my life, so I love the county and its people. I started working in radio at the age of 13 at Coast to County Hospital Radio in Cromer, and pursued my career through education, which lead me to completing a degree at the University of Sunderland in Media Production.

“Once I had completed my degree, I came back to work in Norfolk at various commercial radio stations as a presenter, and working behind the scenes in station sound and production. I came to the BBC in 2008, where I have been working as the Station Sound Producer. You can also hear me reading the showbiz news every weekday afternoon just after 3pm with Stephen Bumfrey.”

You can hear the show every Sunday morning from 6 - 9am on BBC Radio Norfolk (95.1 / 104.4FM / DAB) or online at  or if you miss it you can always listen again on the iplayer:
