Virgin, nay, Absolute Radio has hired Fifth Gear presenter Vicki Butler-Henderson to work alongside Christian O’Connell on the Breakfast Show.
“Christian was a ringmaster doing all the acts himself,” said Clive Dickens, chief operating officer, Absolute Radio “Vicky will not be a co-host – she will be a team member. But she will be there to help. Christian’s had sidekicks at other broadcasters and we wanted to give some of that back.”
"This is a fantastic opportunity – the chance to work with Christian and his team on what is an amazing Breakfast Show, and working with people who have the vision and the means to re-write the definition of radio is too good an opportunity to pass up." said Vicky Butler-Henderson.
Vicky joins the team including Ritchie Firth who has recently joined the Breakfast Show team as executive producer and Brian Murphy, producer on the show.
