And it arrives…

12 Jan

This weekend is the the weekend where we are given a new Chart host, a new weekend show, a new Sunday night show and Jessie Ware doubling up as a DJ.

The changes were announced last year when Reggie Yates and Vernon Kay decided to step down. These changes were introduced short after in order to bring down the average Radio 1 listener.

Ben Cooper, Controller of Radio 1 and 1Xtra said last year:

“…I’m excited by our brand new shows, which will appeal to the smartphone generation with our audience able to listen, watch and share Radio 1’s great content.”

Here’s what is looks like:

SATURDAY:

10:00 – 13:00 – The Matt Edmundson Show

SUNDAY:

10:00 – 13:00 – The Matt Edmundson Show

16:00 – 19:00 – The Official Chart

19:00 – 21:00 – Dan and Phil

Also, this week Sara Cox took over the Live Lounge from Fearne Cotton as she goes on maternity leave and Scott Mills bought the The Official Chart Update forward with the help of Jameela Jamil.
