Entertainment and Lifestyle PR agency KPPR has been appointed as the publicist for the new BBC-produced podcast Dogs and the City, hosted by BBC Radio London’s Jo Good.
Jo will take her celebrity guests on a 30-minute dog walk across London, accompanied by her own bulldog Matilda, and discuss a huge range of subjects, from pet-owning to recent projects. The first guests have been announced as singer Katrina Leskanich – best known for being the lead singer in Katrina and the Waves, the last UK entry to win the Eurovision Song Contest – and comedian and close friend Julian Clary.
Jo has had an 18-year career with the BBC and a lifetime of dog-loving. She has worked as a journalist and broadcaster for award-winning radio shows, including BBC Radio London’s breakfast show and, more recently, the afternoon slot.
Jo’s current work at BBC Radio London features a one-hour long segment every Thursday, called Barking Hour, which claims to be the only radio-based dog show in the world.
Jo has also appeared on This Morning and The Alan Titchmarsh Show as a resident dog-expert, featuring in recurring pet segments, as well as taking part in Sky1 documentary series A Different Breed.
Dogs and the City is available to download via BBC Sounds and on other podcasting platforms, with new episodes every Thursday.
