Sunday reshuffle for Radio 1

Comedian and presenter Tom Deacon is joining BBC Radio 1 to present a new Sunday night show.

The 23 year old will host a new 7pm till 9p show, just after the Top 40 Chart Show. It'll take the same name as his current BBC Switch Show 5:19.

Tom says: “I'm really excited to have my own 5:19 Show on Radio 1, I just can’t wait to get in the studio and start having fun!”

Tom’s new show will be part of a collection of programmes on a Sunday night that will be known as the Switch Zone – kicking off with the Chart Show with Reggie Yates at 4pm and running through until midnight.

Tom will be followed at 9pm by The Surgery with Aled – the station’s weekly social action programme. In a new hour-long slot, The Surgery with Aled will have increased speech content and offer an intensive one stop shop for teens looking for help and advice on a range of subjects at a more accessible time.

Nick Grimshaw and Annie Mac move from their current Sunday show (7pm-10pm) into a later slot (10pm-midnight).

Ben Cooper, Deputy Controller, BBC Radio 1, says: “Tom has been doing a fantastic job with Switch so I’m really pleased to bring him to Radio 1 and his new show means we are strengthening our relationship with Switch even further.

“Our Sunday line-up offers something for all of our younger audiences, from a newly refocused Surgery which will be able to react quicker to the stories that are affecting our young audiences every week, to the UK’s only official Chart Show with Reggie Yates and an exciting new going to bed show with Nick and Annie.”

The new line up for Sunday evenings starts on Sunday 28 March 2010.
