Jensen dropped from breakfast

GCap Media has signed Capital Radio presenter James Cannon to take over the breakfast show from David Jensen on Gold. Co-host Erika North will continue on the show whilst Jensen, who has only been in the slot for less than a year, will move to mid-mornings.

James Cannon will bring his Capital Radio dating feature Flirty @ 9:30 and he'll also include listener interaction and guest interviews on the network that's all about the music.

James said: “I’m really excited about joining Gold. The station has really changed over the past couple of years and the chance to work with such a dedicated team of people is something that really appeals. The show will of course play the best songs ever and I can’t wait to start having a laugh every morning.”

Mike Sweeney continues on Drivetime and Dean Martin will present Gold Control from 8 till 10pm.

Specialist music shows will now dominant the evening schedule Monday to Thursday 22:00 – 00:00 as follows: Monday – The Rock Show, featuring a variety of guest presenters, Tuesday – Bottom to the Top, featuring a celebrity guests chart rundown, Wednesday – 60s Classics, Thursday – At The Hop featuring 50’s Rock n Roll & Du Wop and Friday – Greg Edwards' Soul Party.

Andy Turner, Station Director for the Gold Radio Network said: “James Cannon is an extremely talented and experienced broadcaster who with Erika will bring a new fresh dynamic to the station with the right mix of intelligence and humour to connect with our core ABC1 35-54 audience”.

The changes take place this Monday (21st January).
