More Moyles, JK & Joel axed

Chris Moyles is to get an extra hour on the air every day as Radio 1 announces a new schedule. Also, JK and Joel will leave the station as Fearne Cotton and Reggie Yates take over the Sunday evening chart show, and former Radio Norfolk work experience assistant and Student Radio award winner Greg James will host early breakfast.

JK and Joel will now concentrate on their TV work: "We've had a great time at Radio 1 and have presented some of the biggest shows on the network like early breakfast and the Radio 1 Chart Show.

"We've got a variety of TV shows for different TV channels that we are filming at the moment — we'll now have more time to concentrate on even more exciting new projects."

Sunday evenings will become a teen zone hosted by Annie Mac and Kelly Osbourne. Nihal gets weekend breakfast whilst new boy Greg James takes over early breakfast on weekdays.

Trevor Nelson's Saturday evening show will be simulcast on Radio 1's sister station 1Xtra, whilst Dick and Dom join the station to host the Sunday morning show.

Chris Moyles said: "I'm really pleased with my extension! We always run out of time on the show so it'll be great having an extra half hour a day. Although 'cos it means getting up earlier I'll probably be late more often."

Andy Parfitt, Controller, Radio 1, 1Xtra and Teens, said: "It's important that we keep up the pace of change and innovation both on air and online. This simplifies and strengthens Radio 1 and is an important step in providing programmes focussed on the under-18 audience.

"The Sunday pm line-up, which I'm delighted includes Kelly Osbourne, is a great addition to a zone that will include Fearne Cotton, Reggie Yates and Annie Mac.

"The new Radio 1 schedule, coupled with the recently announced changes for 1Xtra, really give us the chance of turbo-charging the BBC's performance with young audiences over the coming years."

Changes start on October 12th.
