Lucio to take over hit40uk

National chart show hit40uk, produced by Somethin Else has swapped presenter Simon Hirst for Capital Radio drivetime host Lucio.

Simon has been presenting the show for just over two years, since Neil Fox stepped down after 11 years to concentrate on other work.

Even though hit40uk is second in the ratings to Radio’s chart, he told Media Guardian today: “I’m fully confident that within just three to six months, the new show that we are putting together will be the most listened to chart show in the country.

“The dismal, bland and cheesy excuse for a chart that Radio 1 broadcast will really be no contest for us,” he added.

Emap are ready to drop their own Smash Hits Chart in favour of hit40uk as the Lucio gets ready to present his first show next weekend (22nd October).
