UPDATED: The speculation has started on Chris Moyles’ new show

15 Aug

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

Speculation has started today on what show Chris Moyles will go onto present after he steps down from the breakfast show next month. They started after The Independent published an article stating that Chris will take John Peel’s old slot that currently belongs to future Radio 1 Breakfast DJ, Nick Grimshaw.

Radio Today contacted Radio 1 who said that no decisions have been made and that they are still in discussions with Chris on his future at the station. A decision will be made though once he gets back from touring as King Herod in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Jesus Christ Superstar. However, we more likely can expect a weekly slot as he is contracted with the station until 2014 on a salary of £600,000. This is what they said:

We are still in discussions with Chris about his future at Radio 1 and no decisions have been taken.”

Other speculation suggests that he could leave Radio 1 all together and move to America for Sirus Radio. Also, this morning Chris hinted on his handover with mother to be Fearne Cotton that he jokingly wouldn’t mind covering for her when she goes on maternity leave. Take your vote here.

Chris after 8 years  leaves the breakfast show on Friday 14th September with Nick Grimshaw starting the brand new Radio 1 breakfast show on Monday 24th September. Scott Mills will cover the week in-between.

New rumours suggest that he may also be joining LBC Radio and splitting ties from the BBC all together. Also, Chris Moyles had a tweet yesterday which read this:

Just had a very exciting conversation about something very exciting. I will give you details when I can. Vague I know but still sharing!

He later said on the micro-blogging site:

So much speculation! There are a few things being planned and worked on. Last 3 weeks on the morning show and the album. Both are happening.
