New talent for BBC Radio 1Xtra

BBC Radio 1Xtra has made several new DJ signings to the network, giving them their first big break on national radio.

The changes involve a new Early Breakfast Show, new specialist RandB and Hip Hop presenters, as well as a new line-up for the In New 1Xtra DJs We Trust programme.

Twenty-three-year-old Nick Bright, who has been working as a broadcast assistant at 1Xtra, and who finishes his radio production and media studies course at the University of Westminster next month, will present the Early Breakfast Show.

Nick Bright says: "This is a fantastic opportunity for me, stepping up from community and student radio to having my own show on 1Xtra. It's a station that I love and have grown up with and I can't wait to get started".

CJ Beatz will take over the RandB MIX Show (Tuesdays 1-4am), while Charlie Sloth and The Movement, who have recently been deputising for DJ Semtex on the station, will have their own Hip Hop MIX show (Saturdays 1-4am).

The changes mean DJs G Child and Sarah Love will leave the station.

Ben Cooper, Deputy Controller, BBC Radio 1 and Radio 1Xtra, says: "We're thrilled to welcome these new names to the station. Radio 1Xtra must continue to evolve in order to offer our young audience the best Hip Hop and R&B music, as well as the freshest DJ talent.

"Sarah Love and G Child have both made a huge contribution to the station over the years and I wish them both the best of luck".

The new schedule comes into effect from Monday 26 April.
