Here is the official BBC Radio Norfolk press release


Becky Betts, BBC Radio Norfolk’s intrepid co-presenter of Treasure Quest, is leaving the programme at Easter. Her last show will be on Easter Monday when Treasure Quest completes its annual two-day Quest.

Becky, who has been with the programme since it started in 2008, is heading north of the border to work in Scotland and will be sorely missed by the programme’s legion of fans who help her every week to track down the right locations by solving the difficult clues set by the ‘Questmaster’ back in the studio.

Becky is sad to leave the programme where she has become a hit locally, with people coming out of their houses every Sunday morning to meet her when a clue location nearby is solved.

Becky says: “I’m going to miss Sundays but hope to return to Treasure Quest for the odd occasions when I’m back visiting family in the area. It’s not been an easy decision but other full time job opportunities have arisen north of the border. I’ll really miss the team-work and the camaraderie with our listeners. I may just have to listen in on-line every Sunday!”

David Clayton is the studio-based co-presenter of Treasure Quest and also BBC Radio Norfolk’s Editor, he says: “Becky has been a star, she’s climbed up trees, boated across lakes, swung on zip wires and pretty much stretched every sinew to find the Treasure Quest clues. Above all she makes wonderfully funny natural mistakes and is absolutely honest about her struggles with the physicality of the challenges; she frequently makes me laugh out loud!”

It is hoped that Becky can make the occasional guest-presenter appearance on Treasure Quest when she is back in the region to visit family and friends.

Becky’s replacement on BBC Radio Norfolk’s Treasure Quest will be announced soon.
