BBC Radio Wales is to start a new schedule from September 7th. Roy Noble will move his two-hour programme to the afternoon slot, whilst a new three-hour weekday morning magazine programme from 9am will be presented by Wales Today’s Jamie Owen and X Ray’s Louise Elliott.
“I’m looking forward to the challenge of moving to the afternoons,” said Roy. “I’ve got a loyal army of fans and I’m hoping they’ll be right behind me.”
“Radio Wales is enjoying unprecedented success at the moment, but we can’t afford to be complacent,” said Radio Wales Editor Sali Collins. “We must evolve, and this is a good time to introduce a new schedule to help build our afternoon audience while drawing in new listeners during the morning.”
Owen Money will continue to host Money For Nothing show on Saturday mornings and Sunday afternoons while Alan Thompson will front the station’s weekday evening show from Monday to Thursday. Mal Pope will continue to present on Friday evenings. Adam Walton will remain as presenter of the Sunday night new music show and technology magazine Mousemat.
“We realise this is a change for our listeners and we hope that they will enjoy the new line-up,” said Sali Collins.
