Andrew Howard, Audience, Marketing and Sales Manager at The Grand, said: “COASTAL was the perfect fit for The Grand.
“There is an excellent roster of presenters and we believe they will be a vital community resource and a welcome addition to the station.
“Hayley Tamaddon and Dan Whiston are huge supporters of The Grand and, of course, Hayley is the glamorous Good Fairy in our Sleeping Beauty panto this year!”
COASTAL Radio DAB was started by Paula Davies, who was station manager at Blackpool’s Radio Wave and is now owner and CEO of COASTAL Radio DAB.
She said: “I am delighted to have an iconic local brand like The Grand Theater on board and to have the synergy of Hayley Tamaddon in the panto of The Grand this year makes it the perfect fit.
“I am really grateful for the support of the Grand Théâtre.”
COASTAL’s Drive Time airs Monday through Friday from 2-6 p.m. with Hayley and Dan.
Hayley wowed viewers when she took first place on ITV’s hit skating show Dancing on Ice alongside her childhood friend and professional skater Dan.
She also won top prize in Celebrity Stars in Your Eyes and has starred in numerous West End productions and top TV series from Coronation St and Emmerdale to Shameless.
Dan is best known as a professional ice skater, three-time champion and now creative director of ITV’s Dancing on Ice and also appeared on stage in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs at the Blackpool Grand in 2015.
