West End star Kerry Ellis has joined the presenter line-up for new radio station Encore.

The station, which launched earlier this month, is a 24-hour service that is dedicated to musical theatre. Presenters who were previously announced include Duncan James and Jamie Crick, who is also the station’s head of content.

Ellis presents her first show on the station on November 5.

She said: “As well as playing tracks from my own stage heroes, I’ll be playing some less well-known musical theatre gems.”

Encore is available through its free app or online, and on DAB digital radio across London and the South East.
