Changes To The Absolute Radio Line Up

Absolute Radio recently announced Leona Graham is replacing Russ Williams on the mid-morning show from Monday 1st June, and further changes mean a new daytime line-up in the next couple of months.

Former XFM presenter Danielle Perry is to host a new daytime show whilst Geoff Lloyd moves to a later 6pm start at Absolute Radio. Former Radio 1 and XFM presenter Claire Sturgess will also join Absolute Radio to host the Classic Rock Party on Saturday nights and Sarah Champion is taking over as host of the Absolute 80s show on a Friday night as well as Sunday mornings. Also, presenter Vicki Blight has decided to leave the station after five years and she will be replaced by George Godfrey on weekend early breakfast. George only started at the station a year ago, after winning the Student Radio Association competition – Demo Factor.

Absolute Radio Content Director Tony Moorey said: “We’re incredibly excited about a workday line-up which combines incredible music passion from Danielle, with one of our audience’s most adored presenters in Leona and the fantastic humour and wit from Andy.”

Danielle Perry joins the station in July where she will host 4pm-6pm*. She will also host a re-vamped Sunday Night Music Club every week from 8pm, showcasing the best in new music.
