Brighton radio station Radio Reverb is to start broadcasting a mother and baby show for new parents from tomorrow (Sunday 9 July).
The station said: “A brand new, and unique, monthly radio show is launching on Radio Reverb this week exploring the rollercoaster journey into parenthood.
“Home-grown broadcaster and new mum Josie Booth will be sharing her pregnancy thoughts and new motherhood experiences with all new parents out there and will also be featuring fellow new mums telling it like it really is.
“Guest experts will be helpfully imparting their wisdom and local Brightonians will be sharing their top tips for things to do with the mini micros – all served with a healthy dollop of musical treats to silence the screaming … parents!
“The show which is yet another unique piece of broadcasting from the not-for profit radio station will have its broadcast premiere on Sunday 9 July at 2pm and will be repeated in the mornings throughout the month.
“Other ways to listen will be via the Listen Again button at www.radioreverb.com.”
Producer and presenter Josie Booth said: “Radio Reverb offers a unique and innovative platform to launch my new show The Mothership.
“My baby boy Phoenix is just six weeks old and becoming a new mum is a huge challenge.
“I wanted to provide a place in which honest, open experiences could be shared – the good, the bad and the ugly.”
Station director and head of content Ali Rezakhani said: “Once again Radio Reverb comes up with a creative solution for a subject which needs discussing much more across the airwaves.
“While a joyous time, the challenges of new parenting need voicing and we hope that it will really help those who might actually be struggling.
“There is no one better than Josie to do this for us – in her spare time.”
