AJ King is Kiss Chosen One

Bauer Radio's Kiss has announced the winner of its talent search competition as AJ King – a 28 year old student and part-time DJ from Wembley.

He beat thousands of hopefuls in the 8-week competition to win a slot on the youth station's line-up.

AJ said: "I'm so overwhelmed that it's come down to me. There was so much talent in the final groups and I'm just glad all my hard work has finally paid off!"

Since the start of the year, Kiss has been looking for radio stars of the future and putting the finalists through their paces. Live auditions took place in shopping centres, with 25 candidates picked for the Kiss Academy. They were whittled down to just 10 before listener votes helped pick the final five.

In the latter stages, hopefuls were given a Blackberry – to tie in with the promotion's sponsorship deal – and asked to do video reports on a variety of topics.

Andy Roberts, Kiss Group Programme Director told us: "From day one of this activity we set out to find a new presenter for Kiss and give people outside of the industry a chance to be that person. At Kiss we're proud in finding, nurturing and home growing talent and AJ now joins an award winning team at the World Famous Kiss".

AJ will do his first show on the station this Sunday
