It’s been an eventful few weeks for Global Radio! The talking point of the summer for those in the radio industry, has been the constant speculation over the rebranding of XFM.
Today, Global have finally put an end to all the rumours and have confirmed that Radio X, will launch on Monday September 21st, playing the best rock and guitar-based music across the UK.
With a star studded new presenter line up, it has now been announced that Chris Moyles will be back on the air from 06.30-10.00 am alongside Vernon Kay on mid-mornings, Johnny Vaughan at drive and Kaiser Chiefs’ front man Ricky Wilson at weekends.
The station will replace XFM and Global are marketing it as their first truly male-focused, fully national music and entertainment brand for 25-44 year olds. Radio X will be available all across the UK on the digital radio platform D1 as well as on 104.9FM in London and 97.7FM in Manchester.
Johnny Vaughan, Radio X drive time presenter, said: “They say there’s nothing better than that ‘new car’ smell. Well there is… it’s the smell of a brand new drive time show on a brand new radio station being listened to in that brand new car! Great Britain needs great banter and I can’t wait to be back on air five days a week talking to people up and down the UK as we get them home with a bit of a laugh and some awesome music!”
We will be tuning in, will you?
