Radio duo Rob and Chrissie today presenting their last ever breakfast show on Heart Radio.

For fourteen years radio listeners in Norfolk have woken up to the Rob and Chrissie breakfast show, but the well-known duo took to the airwaves together on Heart for the final time.

Rob Chandler and Chrissie Jackson originally teamed up in April 1999, on the then Radio Broadland, and since then they have woken up thousands of listeners across the local area every weekday morning.

Rob has worked in radio in East Anglia for more than 30 years – 27 of them presenting the breakfast show - while Chrissie has been a familiar voice in the area for 27 years on a variety of different shows.

In a statement released by Heart, the pair said: 'The radio station and the breakfast show have been a huge part of our lives. We've had a fantastic time on and off-air with the team here and most importantly with the listeners. Presenting Heart Breakfast has been one of the best jobs in the world and it has been a privilege to be part of our listeners' lives.'
