Hello BBC Radio 1 addicts! Here’s your first dose of news.

Yesterday, was the day that saw BBC Radio 1’s new schedule take to the air. This included veteran hometime DJ, Scott Mills switching from 4-7 to the 1-4 slot with Greg James. Also, with the disappearance of Ready for the Weekend he will also host the newly named BBC Radio 1’s Dance Anthems from 6-7pm every Friday instead of Scott’s weekly Ready for the Weekend. Plus, new additions to the weekend schedule include T4 presenter Jameela Jamil who will present her first show this coming Sunday, 8th April 2012 between 7-9pm replacing stand-up comedian and DJ Tom Deacon who will become the station’s new ‘super-sub’. Here’s what she had to say about her new position:

“To say I’m excited is a major understatement – being offered the opportunity to join the Radio 1 family is literally a dream come true and I can’t wait to slip on the headphones.”

Also, the station says hello to another brand new DJ, Danny Howard who won the station’s Superstar DJ competition in August of 2011. You can catch his new show this Saturday, the 7th April from 4-7pm instead of the Request Show with Reggie Yates which has been shifted to Sundays as said above with Jameela Jamil. In addition BBC Radio 1Xtra’s Gemma Cairney will take over the Weekend Breakfast slot this coming Saturday, 7th April 2012 replacing Edith Bowman who will takeover the Review Show in a few weeks once she returns from her holiday. Here’s what Gemma had to say about the news:

“I arrived at 1Xtra just over three years ago a wide eyed puppy & soon became obsessed with all things radio. It will be really emotional, but I’m only moving downstairs to Radio 1 and I can’t wait for all the new fun it’ll bring.”

Other schedule changes include 1Xtra’s Charlie Sloth taking over the Monday 2-4am slot. Furthermore, Heidi, Chucki and Kutski all have been lined up for Radio 1’s Residency slot making room for Toddla T’s very own show to go out on Thursday nights from 2-4am. Additions to the In New DJs We Trust zone are B. Traits, Mosca, Jordan Suckley and Julio Bashmore all on a weekly alternation. Those panicking when Jaymo and Andy George have gone, don’t worry because they will become the new sub DJs covering for Annie Nightingale and Pete Tong in their absences.

Here’s what new Radio 1 and 1Xtra controller, Ben Cooper had to say about the changes:

These are exciting times at Radio 1 & 1Xtra. The latest changes are about attracting even more young listeners by bringing in new and fresh talent to the stations.”
