Sam Bailey Guest Presents GEM 106 Breakfast Show
It’s been a busy spring so far for Champions Celebrity Talent Management client, Sam Bailey. Embarking on her 32-date nationwide Sing My Heart Out tour in March, she’s criss-crossing the UK, wowing audiences from Aberdeen to Yeovil between now and late May.
Easter offered the gold-selling 2013 X Factor winner the chance of a change of pace, with a two-week break from live performance, and the opportunity to enjoy a little family life before hitting the road again at the end of the month.
But it also offered her another interesting possibility – and one that she was thrilled to pursue. Approached by East Midlands radio station GEM 106, she was asked to cover for regular breakfast presenter Amy Voce, who herself was planning a week’s holiday. And she didn’t hesitate to accept.
Filling in for Amy on the popular Sam and Amy Show, airing between 6AM and 10AM, Monday 10 April to Thursday 13 April, Sam was the perfect choice.
Having already shown how talented a presenter she is, thanks to a number of wonderful appearances on ITV’s Loose Women panel show, Sam’s happy-go-lucky persona and East Midlands’ roots made the decision a no-brainer for the GEM 106 team.
And Sam herself was raring to go, saying, “Music has always been my first passion in life, and radio presenting is just another branch of that for me. It’s an opportunity for people to see another side of me, the person behind the singing voice.”
“The tour has been incredible, every date has had amazing energy and I’m loving every moment of it, but it’s always good to mix it up with something different. It’ll also give me the chance to see my family over Easter, and refresh myself for the rest of the tour.”
Be sure to tune in as Sam and Sam brighten up breakfast across the great East Midlands. Gem 106 can be found on 106.0 FM.
