ASPIRING model Zoe Newlove is one of a three-strong team of women heading up the breakfast show on Newlove FM, launched as a legacy to her dad.

The 20-year-old, whose dad Garry was murdered by drunken youths outside their Fearnhead home in August 2007, can be heard with Vicky Duncalf and Vic McGlynn from 7am to 10am weekdays on 87.7FM.

She said: “I was really nervous when we first went on air on Monday – none of us had covered breakfast shows before but we’ve had lots of positive feedback so I’m really pleased.

“I think dad would love what we’re doing as he was very passionate about music and I know he’d be very proud.

”I’m so proud of mum too. Everything has moved on so fast since she started doing this a year ago and she’s been working really hard to make it a success.”

Once the radio project finishes broadcasting next Sunday, Zoe, who is in the process of securing modelling contracts, will volunteer for hospital radio to continue following in the footsteps of her dad, also a part-time DJ.

Zoe, a big r’n’b and house music fan, added: “If my sisters Amy and Danielle were older they’d be doing something on the radio but they’re doing things behind the scenes and giving feedback on the music.

“They’re really excited about the radio and all the celebrities we’re having on here as well as the summer ball next Saturday.”

Among the famous faces featuring on Newlove FM include Tim Henman, Ricky Tomlinson, Gordon Brown, David Cameron and soap stars.
