Boston DJ Scott Dalton will take over the BBC Radio Lincolnshire Breakfast Show, the top broadcasting job at the station.

Thirty-seven-year-old Dalton was announced as the man you’ll crack your boiled eggs open to just minutes ago by current presenter Rod Whiting, who is standing down after almost eight years in the chair.

The former Kitwood Boys pupil will begin presenting the 6am-9am slot from April 29.

But will his show be the toast of the county or a load of waffle?

“It will be very uplifting and a great way to start your day,” Dalton promised.

“If you live in Lincolnshire, whether you’ve got to get up, you’re retired and listening in bed or on the way to work and want to know what’s going on, we’ll have a lot to things to celebrate.”

The Breakfast Show is the station’s flagship programme, bringing in the most listeners throughout the week.

Dalton began working for Radio Lincolnshire in 2000, after beginning his journalistic career at the Boston Standard as a 16-year-old.

Over the past 13 years, he has worked as a roving news reporter, stand-in show host and football commentator - mostly on Boston United matches.

Dalton’s last match with the mic will be the Pilgrims’ final match of the season a week tomorrow, at home to Brackley Town.
