NME Radio has hired Jon Hillcock to host the station's weekday mid-morning show from October 5th, taking two hours out of Samanthi's daily show.
Jon moves to NME Radio from XFM where he presented both daytime and specialist night time shows.
Sammy Jacob, NME Radio managing and programming director says: "Jon’s knowledge and passion for new music matches the spirit of NME Radio perfectly. We’re all delighted to have Jon on board and I’m sure our listeners will be too. He’s also a really nice guy which makes working with him an even greater pleasure.”
Jon Hillcock adds: “I absolutely cannot wait to provide a genuine musical alternative each morning on NME Radio. Not only that, but I get to continue with my weekend New Noise show and be part of an enormously passionate and dedicated team”.
Previously, Samanthi hosted 10am till 2pm, with an Afternoon Lounge from 2 till3. The new schedule puts Hillcock from 10am till 12pm, and Samanthi 12pm till 3pm.
