Helen Mayhew, one of the original presenters at Jazz FM in London, is heading back to the present-day digital version of the station.
Helen joins Sarah Ward to present the flagship Dinner Jazz programme, which has been extended to run six nights a week, Sunday to Friday, 7pm to 10pm from July 1st.
Helen was most recently at Classic FM where she hosted Jazz programmes, and previously worked at BBC Radio 2 and Radio 3 presenting jazz related shows. She will also host a new magazine style programme reflecting the current vibrant state of the UK jazz scene, with new music, interviews and news, and a pick of the week’s top gigs and festivals.
Mike Vitti, Programme Director of Jazz FM, said: “Helen’s return to Jazz FM is a major coup and testament to our commitment to providing the very best in jazz radio for a country that is hungry for such programming”.
Helen Mayhew said: "I cannot wait to return to Jazz FM, especially at a time when all of us need a relaxing way to unwind at the end of the day during these challenging times"
As a result of the Dinner Jazz changes, Mike Chadwick’s Latin Party is moving to Friday nights at 10pm.
