Xfm has signed Pete Mitchell to present the weekday Xfm Manchester Breakfast Show, from 7-11am, commencing on 15th June 2009. Mitchell will also present Razor Cuts, a specialist music show across the network on Sunday evening.
The move follows the recent signings of day-time network presenter, Richard Skinner and Xfm London’s Breakfast Show presenter, Ian Camfield.
The multi Sony Award winning presenter has vast broadcasting experience spanning many radio stations including BBC Radio 2, and stints on 6 Music. Previously, Pete was one half of the Sony Award winning duo, Pete & Geoff, presenting Virgin Radio Breakfast.
He said “I'm looking forward to coming back to Manchester, to a station as committed to serious music broadcasting as Xfm. I can’t wait to get started and make the show my own.”
Paul Jackson, Group Programme Director, 95.8 Capital FM, The Hit Music Network & The XFM Network added: “I have no doubt in my mind that Pete will be an absolute success at Xfm Manchester and we are thrilled to have him as part of the team.”
