‘Brilliant’ BBC radio presenter Lisa Shaw who was ‘wonderful wife and mum’ dies aged 44 after short illness

A ‘brilliant’ BBC radio presenter has died aged 44 after a short illness, the outlet said on Sunday.

Lisa Shaw’s family said her death had left ‘a Lisa-shaped hole in our lives that will never be filled.’  

Shaw broadcasted every weekday on BBC Radio Newcastle and was described as a ‘brilliant presenter’ by the station’s Acting Executive Editor Rik Martin.  

‘Everyone at the station is devastated and thinking about Lisa’s lovely family,’ Martin said.

‘She was a trusted colleague, a brilliant presenter, a wonderful friend, and a loving wife and mum. She loved being on the radio and was loved by our audiences. We’ve lost someone special who meant a great deal to a great many people.’ 

Chris Burns, the head of BBC Local Radio also paid tribute to ‘talented’ Shaw, who he said ‘had already achieved a lot and would have achieved much more. 

‘She hosted a special programme at Easter broadcast on all 39 of our local stations in England, a fact that reflects the regard she was held in. My thoughts are with Lisa’s family, friends, and colleagues at this terrible time.’ 

Shaw joined BBC Radio Newcastle in 2016 after working in popular stations in the north-east of England including Metro Radio and Heart.
