Attorney-at-law and broadcaster Emily Crooks Shields will retake the airwaves on Thursday as host of the call-in programme 'Hotline' on RJR 94FM.

She replaces veteran broadcaster, Barbara Gloudon, who hosted the programme for the last time on March 27, after a 28-year run.

Crooks Shields has worked at RJR in the past.

She joins Dr Orville Taylor and attorney-at-law Clive Mullings as hosts of the long-running daytime call-in programme and will host on Thursdays and Fridays.

Last year, the attorney ended a more than ten-year stint at Nationwide News Network, where she co-hosted the morning programme 'This Morning'.

At the time, she said she did not want her departure to be seen as her "walking out" on Cliff Hughes, the Nationwide boss.
