BBC 1Xtra, the station which likes to identify presenters with first names only, has announced that Max will replace Nesha as host of the lunch time show. Max is thrilled she has been given the opportunity, and feels there is a great sense of fun and excitement at the digital-only station.
She said "I'm thrilled at the opportunity to be part of the team at 1Xtra. There's amazing energy here — the presenters are as passionate about music as the listeners, and there's a real sense of fun and excitement."
Lorna, Head of Programmes at 1Xtra said: "We're very happy to have Max on board. Nesha achieved a loyal fan base during her time at 1Xtra, and added her unique touch to the daytime schedule. I wish her all the best in the new phase of her career."
Nesha said: "I've had four fantastic years at 1Xtra. I'm really going to miss the listeners, and the team here, but I'm really looking forward to exploring new opportunities."
Other presenters at the station include Jason, Iyare, Ayesha, Jenna, Dev and DJ B. Max will present the first show on 7 May.
