Bloomfield House
Mar 14th, 2016, 1:55pm
 
BBC Radio Derby has renamed their studio centre after Colin Bloomfield.

Colin worked at BBC Radio Derby for ten years. He was reporter, commentator and presenter.

While presenting The Breakfast Show at BBC Radio Derby, Colin was diagnosed with stage four melanoma. The news of Colinís illness provoked a huge response from listeners with whom he shared the progress of his treatment.

Radio Derby editor Simon Cornes said: "Colin spent so much time here working on his programmes that we thought it would be really fitting to name the building after him.

"It will mean a great deal to everyone here to come to work each day in Bloomfield House."
The presenter also lent his name to the Colin Bloomfield Melanoma Appeal which has raised more than £152,000.

Colin was 33 when he died at a hospice in Shropshire.
