JK and Joel join Virgin Radio

Presenting duo JK and Joel are joining Virgin Radio. They will host a weekend mid-morning show from January after being axed from the chart show on Radio 1 earlier this year, replacing Leona Graham who is expected to move to a new shift.

The pair first worked together at Viking FM in 1996 and also hosted breakfast at Manchester's Key 103. They picked up a Sony Award for best breakfast in 2000. They most recently presented eary breakfast and the chart show on Radio 1.

JK & Joel said, “No longer are we hauling our arses out of bed at 3am looking like crap, instead we are really looking forward to doing weekends. It’ll be great to go up against our old mate Vernon at 10am, that’s if he can be bothered to turn up – his random game show schedule is demanding don’t you know!”

This is the latest signing by new programme director David Lloyd who only recently welcomed comedian and broadcaster Iain Lee aboard to present a Sunday night show between 10pm and 1am set to be a late night mix of irreverent interactive chat and music. His first show is due to air on Jan 6th between 10pm and 1am.

“JK & Joel love radio — that’s why they are joining us. Virgin is a place where they can have some fun. This signing, coupled with Iain Lee’s, signals what our new weekends are about.” said David Lloyd, Programme Director of Virgin Radio.
