Frank Skinner is to join Absolute Radio to present a Saturday morning breakfast show. The stand-up comic and former chat-show host will join the station for three months.
It’ll be Skinner's first regular radio presenting job and will be produced by Avalon Television, the first time an Absolute show has been taken out of house. Skinner will be joined by co-presenter and radio newcomer Emily Dean for the show which begins this weekend from 8am until 10am.
The Absolute Radio chief operating officer, Clive Dickens said: "I can see the enthusiasm with which he has approached it – radio is a medium that Frank very much wants to conquer."
