Tonkinson joins Xfm London

Xfm's Manchester breakfast presenter Paul Tonkinson's leaving the station, only 9 months since its launch.

The stand-up comedian and former Big Breakfast TV host is heading for sister station Xfm London – he'll present weekday afternoons 1-4pm.

Tonkinson replaces the departing Shaun Keaveny who leaves later this year. Keaveny is joining BBC 6Music to present the Dream Ticket programme 10pm to 1am Mondays to Thursdays, from mid-January.

Also announced today, Xfm London are taking on Steve Harris, who's been with Virgin Radio for the last 3 years. Harris will host the station's new music show, Music:Response.

Ande Macpherson, Xfm network programme director, said: "This is the strongest line-up Xfm has ever had. Tonks will add humour to our afternoons with a really exciting replacement lined up for him on breakfast in Manchester. Steve lives and breathes new music and will blow the speakers off the radio with exciting new bands every night."
