Sweeney gets ready to Rock

Mancunian broadcasting legend Mike Sweeney is the first presenter to sign up to Manchester’s newest radio station, 106.1 Rock Radio.

The Salford-born broadcaster will host the drive-time show on the station when it launches at 6pm on May 5th.

Sweeney was most recently the host of the Planet Rock Breakfast Show on XFM Manchester on Sundays and Gold’s weekday drive-time and rock shows

Mike performed with his band the Salford Jets at venues around the city and over the years, has continued his radio presenting work, along with branching out into sport and documentary making. He currently hosts the United Debate Show on Channel M.

Mike, who lives in Saddleworth with his wife Viv and daughter Niamh, said: “I’m chuffed to bits. I’ve always tried to only take on work that I love and I know that I’m going to absolutely love playing rock music in Manchester for people in Manchester."

Joe Radcliffe, station director at Rock Radio, said: “He’s passionate about the music that Rock Radio is all about, has an impeccable Manchester heritage and knows what our listeners will want to hear. We couldn’t have wished for a better signing.”
