Tony Blackburn joins KMFM

In the same week that Tony Blackburn announces his departure from Classic Gold, can reveal he is to join kmfm for weekly syndicated show across Kent. The show will air each Sunday from 4pm till 7pm and feature "his favourite tunes".

kmfm’s Group Programme Controller, Steve Fountain says “We’re so excited and proud to be bringing a truly legendary broadcaster to Kent. He’s such a massive character and clearly people love Tony following his success in the jungle. He’ll be playing some of his favourite music on a Sunday which is offering our listeners something quite different at that time of day. It also reinforces our Best Music Variety promise to our audience”.

Tony Blackburn said: "I am very excited about joining kmfm and getting the chance to open my record box to the people of Kent who have been deprived the chance of hearing me for too long. I'm hoping that following their Sunday Roast they\'ll be sitting down and tuning in to kmfm to see what I will be cooking up for them”.

This is a unique opportunity in the way the deal is structured and I am pleased to be breaking the mould again in UK radio and I am very grateful to Steve Fountain and his team for all the work they are putting in to the show."
