Thank God ‘Radio 1‘ have finally listened to their listeners and announced that Chris Moyles will be leaving the airwaves in September. His successor will be Nick Grimshaw, who is far more popular with the 15-29 demograhpic. During his breakfast show the other day, Chris made a small speech about his departure: “We’re off. I wanted to let you know. A couple more months of us, then it’s someone else’s turn. Thank you for listening.”
Nick Grimshaw is of course sorry for his friend, but delighted about his new promotion: “I’m super-excited to be hosting the iconic ‘Radio 1 Breakfast Show‘, it’s been a dream of mine since the age of 11 and to be honest it hasn’t really sunk in yet. I love Chris and have always looked up to him as one of the best broadcasters ever.” Aw, Scott Mills should have gotten it!
