He told about the listener reaction to The Coast 106 so far: "Never in my radio career have I witnessed such an amazing response to the start of a radio station."

In addition, voice-over man and former Virgin Radio presenter Mitch Johnson has joined the station to host the drivetime show, and former Smooth Radio London boss Gavin McCoy is acting as a full time consultant for the station.
