Tony Blackburn goes national

Sensational Tony Blackburn is set to be networked across five of GMG's Smooth Radio stations.

His weekend breakfast show, which originates from London each Saturday and Sunday from 7 till 10am will air across the capital, the east and west midlands, the north west of England and Glasgow from Saturday.

Sky Television has secured a year-long deal as the new sponsor for the show. “I can’t wait to take the show to other parts of the UK,” said Tony. “It’ll be fantastic to broadcast across so much of the UK.”

GMG Radio group programme director John Simons told “Tony is a legend and will be an asset to our weekend schedules on other stations in the Smooth Radio network. His show will provide our stations with a strong start to the weekend and a real appointment to listen and we’re delighted to be welcoming Sky on board as our new partners.”
