95.8 Capital Radio London's signed two more TV presenters to join its weekend output. MTV's Dave Berry and ITV regular Matt Brown are joining in the station as part of a new Saturday line-up for 2007. The changes start from this weekend.
Saturdays on Capital also feature Margherita Taylor and Craig Doyle – making a full 11 hours of TV talent on the station in one day!
For Dave Berry, it's his first venture on the radio – after success on ITV1's CD:UK as well as Channel 4. The new 2-5pm show will be a mix of celebrity chat and the big hits.
Dave says: "It is great that I have been given this opportunity, as I am fully aware of how dark and miserable January can be! It will be nice to bring a few laughs and a bit of rock and roll to a Saturday afternoon."
ITV regular Matt Brown, known for presenting "Celebrity Love Island After Sun" and "I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here Now", is no stranger to radio, having started his career in BBC radio and presenting the commercial radio networks' coverage of Live 8.
Matt's show, on air 12-2pm will look at "30 Greatest…" each week including Greatest Divas, Number Ones, Acoustic Sessions and Brits Winners.
Matt said: "Having listened to Capital Radio throughout my short, yet beautiful life I can't wait to get into those legendary 95.8 studios and talk to London whilst it's having its lunch."
Capital Radio's Programme Director Scott Muller told RadioToday.co.uk: "What great a way to start the New Year, these two credible presenters are fantastic additions to the schedule, and I am sure, with their quick wit, charisma and charm they will be very popular with Capital's listeners."

06:00 – 09:00 Margherita Taylor
09:00 – 12:00 Craig Doyle
12:00 – 14:00 Matt Brown
