Alice Levine is the latest Radio 1 signing and will co-present the 10pm slot alongside newcomer Phil Taggart.

Annie Mac will continue to present her usual Sunday night slot without Nick Grimshaw providing “mellow and feel good tunes”.

She will also continue to present her Friday night dance show .

Chris Moyles was previously speculated to takeover this slot however sources now suggest he has rejected this offer and will not be returning to Radio 1.

Levine explains that this is a “dream come true” and says “she can’t wait to get started”.

Phil Taggart is thrilled having similarly “been a total Radio 1 geek” for as long as he can remember.

He says:

“It’s a total privilege to be given two hours, four days a week to play brand new music that I am really passionate about and the fact I am doing it with Alice is a complete dream job.”

He goes onto add:

“She’s sharper than a safety pin and genuinely funny.”

Ben Cooper, Controller of Radio 1 and 1Xtra finally says:

“Signing Alice and Phil to the 10pm-midnight show and confirming Annie as the new host of late Sunday evenings rounds off an incredible year for Radio 1 – from Jay-Z and Rihanna on stage at Hackney to launching a brand new breakfast show with Nick Grimshaw. With Phil, Alice and Annie we have a great set of talented DJs who will continue to champion the best in new music.”

Phil Taggart and Alice Levine’s Specialist New Music Show will begin on Monday 7th January 2013.
