THERE'LL be no more lie-ins for Frank Mitchell come September, when he takes on the new role of presenter of U105 Morning.

From Monday, September 18, the UTV man will be up early to host the show, which begins at 9am.

The new post means Frank will be extra busy as he juggles radio, UTV Live and presenting the weather.

Frank said: "Radio was my first love and it's a pleasure to be taking over as the presenter of U105 Morning.

"I believe the station has the best music format on the dial and with the input from both the radio and TV newsrooms, it is an exciting studio complex to work in.

"It's fast-moving, entertaining, up-to-date and bubbling with the energy and warmth that has made UTV such a success over many years.

"It really is a dream come true to be in the unique position of working on radio each morning and on TV each evening. I'm looking forward to the wonderful challenge ahead."

John Rosborough, managing director, U105, said: "Frank is a big TV personality but with his love for radio he's also been willing to lend his talents to U105 over the past 10 months.

"He's a great presenter and it's a natural fit for Frank to present U105 Morning."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Aquarius:

A cherished dream is elusive. It will be best to change gear, at least for the immediate future. Pursue a moneymaking opportunity with creative appeal. Getting paid to exercise your imagination will lift your spirits. By the time you finish this assignment, you may be in better condition to pursue your primary goal. A brilliant idea for operating on a shoestring budget will come. At that point, nothing will stand between you and success. Stay calm and take things one step at a time.More
