Kerrang! hires Nuts TV host

There are a couple of changes at Kerrang! Radio this month, with Simon James and Hill signing a permanent contract to host breakfast, and television presenter OJ Borg joining to take over the drivetime show.

OJ has previously presented on Sky Sports 3, TMF, VH1, MTV online and Nuts TV, recently returning from filming The Bull Run, driving random cars through the states of America.

OJ will co-present the new Drive show alongside Kate Lawler who joined the station in 2007.

Programme Director Gordon Davidson said “The new show will be bigger and better than ever, fronted by personalities to rival Radio 1. Kate has found her home on Drive and OJ will be a great addition, together they will host one of the UK’s most entertaining drive shows”.

Kate moved to the Kerrang! Radio Drive slot in May, she said “I’ve already done a one off show with OJ, he’s such good fun and I can’t wait for him to join me on Kerrang!”

The new Drive co-star hails from Leicester and started life as Oliver James Borg D’Anastasi, his Maltese name soon became shortened and is now known as OJ Borg – mainly because he couldn’t spell it. He said “I’m looking forward to working with the lovely Kate Lawler and playing some great music of course. I’m from the Midlands so I can’t wait to move back, it’s going to be great!”

Simon James and Hill also make their move to the breakfast slot permanent and are joined by a new addition Danielle Perry, 28 who will be moving from Southampton to be The Morning After’s music news reporter; Gordon added “The Morning After with Simon James and Hill has proved more popular than ever with Kerrang!’s morning listeners, the boys have done a brilliant job on the show and will continue to do so."
