Nation Hits! in Wales is to simulcast the breakfast show from sister station Bridge FM in Bridgend from tomorrow.

Lee Jukes, breakfast presenter for Bridge FM, said on his website: "This is a very exciting time. The show just got bigger and I’m looking forward to waking up an even bigger part of South and South West Wales every morning!"

Jay Curtis is still listed as breakfast presenter on the Nation Hits! website, and currently the website has not been updated to reflect the new schedule.

Both stations are part of Town and Country Broadcasting.

Nation Hits has 35,000 listeners, while Bridge FM attracts 41,000.
