THERE is a new voice behind the mic on fast growing regional radio station Cheshire’s Mix 56 as speaker, author and podcaster Penny Dee takes to the airwaves with a new Friday lunchtime show.

The Cheshire businesswoman will bring a slice of the ‘world according to Penny Dee’ to the Lymm-based station’s programming schedule, inviting listeners to tune in on Fridays from 12pm until 1pm for a lifestyle show that promises a cross between Loose Women and a chat with your best friend.

Over the course of one hour, The Penny Dee Show will deliver a range of inspiring and uplifting lifestyle content for women including topical chat, engaging interviews, empowering thought perspectives and upbeat music, all delivered with Penny’s straight talking and irreverent humour.

With her first show in less than three weeks, Penny said: “After meeting the Cheshire’s Mix 56 team for the first time and learning more about the station’s aspirations, I was immediately on board. I love what they’re doing, the commitment to true regional radio and the focus on bringing out the best in our wonderful communities.

“I’m a real woman’s woman and I’ll be using my show to champion and highlight a range of important topics that impact women across our broadcasting area. The show will provide insight into what it means to be a woman in the world today and how we navigate the twists and turns of life with strength, resilience and spirit. I’ll be covering a range of issues including the workplace, relationships, motherhood, children, the menopause and health in an authentic and easy to engage with way.”

Station owner and presenter, Paul Smith, added: “We’re incredibly excited for Penny to join the team and can’t wait for her get started. An authority in her area of expertise, Penny is easy to listen to and speaks fluently and inclusively on a range of issues – our listeners are going to love her.”

After more than two decades in the corporate world, Penny left her job in IT to create a better work life balance, pursue personal happiness and realise her entrepreneurial dreams of running her own business.
