OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE
NEWS PROVIDED BY
The UK’s most popular radio host, Ken Bruce, is joining the team at Greatest Hits Radio from April of this year.
The much-loved presenter will become part of the Greatest Hits Radio family with a brand-new mid-morning show from 10am – 1pm. Ken will kickstart a weekday line up that also includes presenters Simon Mayo at Drivetime and Jackie Brambles in the early evening.
Ken’s show will be broadcast across the entire network, following Rossie’s Breakfast show in England and Wales and Ewen & Cat’s Breakfast Show in Scotland. This will be followed with regional afternoon shows, which in Scotland will be hosted by Stuart Webster, and then Simon Mayo’s Drivetime Show before evening programming with Jackie Brambles.
This announcement follows last week’s news that Greatest Hits Radio will become Scotland’s first national commercial radio station as Clyde 2, Forth 2, MFR 2, Northsound 2, Tay 2, West Sound in Ayrshire, and West Sound in Dumfries & Galloway all rebrand to Greatest Hits Radio on the same April 3rd date.
Ken Bruce said “What better way to celebrate my forty-five years in radio than with a new adventure and a brand-new show on Greatest Hits Radio. I say brand-new but there will still be PopMaster, me and my musings and all the great records you know and love from the 70s, 80s and 90s. I’m looking forward to getting started and to you joining me for my very first show. See you in April!”
Ben Cooper, Chief Content & Music Officer, Bauer Audio UK said “Ken Bruce is a broadcasting legend, with the biggest radio show in the UK, so as well as today being an exciting announcement for Greatest Hits Radio and its growing audience, it is a hugely significant moment for the industry. What a fantastic start to a great year of increased ambition and innovation for Bauer Media Audio.”
