Chris Moyles to be replaced by Nick Grimshaw on BBC Radio 1 breakfast
Oldies radio station Radio One has seen its breakfast show presenter Chris Moyles move on.
Announcing his departure on air in a reminder of Dave Lee Travis’s on air departure all those years ago the DJ is to be replaced by Manchester’s Nick Grimshaw.
The self proclaimed “saviour of Radio 1″ was the most popular daytime radio DJ on the station and not without controversy. The average age of his listeners was 33 and the move is though to be the BBC looking for that indefinable ‘youth market’.
Why not just play eclectic and great music?
What do you think? fan of the breakfast show? bored of radio one? do we need a shake up? is music being strangled? does this all really matter any more in the internet era?
