Vaughan to stay at Capital

Capital Radio breakfast host Johnny Vaughan has signed a new three-year deal to keep him at the station, despite the loss of listeners since taking over from Chris Tarrant in April 2004. Speculation that Craig Doyle was to take over his show circulated the industry before Christmas.

Steve Orchard, Group Operations Director of GCap Media, said: “Throughout last year we made great improvements to the sound of 95.8 Capital Radio, making it more London-centric and playing more credible contemporary hit music. This year we are determined to bring those listeners who have gone to other stations back home. No-one can deliver the warmth and humour that Londoners want from their breakfast show as well as Johnny can, and we are confident that the show will thrive in 2007 with Johnny at the helm and under the guidance of Capital’s new Programme Director Scott Muller."

Johnny Vaughan commented: “I inherited London’s number 1 breakfast show three years ago from a living legend with 17 years under his belt. To keep the show in the top spot with that kind of legacy has been a tremendous challenge, particularly given the intensity of the competition. The market’s changed and so have we, I’ve got a great team around me and the show’s going from strength to strength. Thanks to all at Capital and the breakfast team for their boundless support and enthusiasm, I look forward to many more mornings at the helm of London’s best breakfast show. “
