News junkie Des has landed his dream job hosting Scotland’s brand new topical news quiz.

Breaking The News, for BBC Radio Scotland begins a 10 week run on Friday 5th June.
Describing it, the BBC says: ‘A mix of the UK’s top comedians, journalists and up and coming stand-up talent will take a satirical swipe at the week’s news in Scotland and across the UK.

‘Following the events of a game-changing General Election, there is sure to be a wealth of material for them to discuss and dissect.’

According to Des, “It’s a great excuse to watch the news all day. I love writing topical gags so a weekly satire show is right up my street. It’s important that Scotland has an outlet like this and I’m delighted to be fronting it.”

Recordings will take place at Glasgow School of Art. Click here for free tickets.
