Radio 1 welcomes new talent

The early breakfast show on BBC Radio 1 each Friday is set to become a breeding ground for new and emerging talent giving existing DJs and future signings a key show in which to work. Scott Mills and Chris Moyles have previously hosted this show, both moving on to daytime.

The presenters will front the show on a rotational basis kicking off this Friday 12 January with Radio 1 Surgery host Letitia.

Ben Cooper, Head of Programmes, Radio 1, said: "The early slots have always been a place that DJs could develop their broadcasting skills and have the freedom to experiment. We've seen major stars like Chris Moyles and Scott Mills emerge from these shows and now we have a place dedicated to developing the stars of the future."

Previous Friday early breakfast hosts Fearne Cotton and Reggie Yates will now concentrate on the show they were promoted to in September – weekend breakfast (Saturdays and Sundays, 7-10am) – as well as their extensive television commitments.
