Kiss launches Big Beats Chart

Bauer's Kiss are launching a new UKHot40 Big Beats Chart which will be available on the radio station as well as its sister TV channel.

The new television show will be presented by Kiss breakfast presenters Rickie and Melvin who are swapping MTV for Kiss TV.

Kiss’ UKHot40 Big Beats chart kicks off this week on Kiss Radio and will deliver the 40 biggest selling, most wanted dance, hip hop and R and B tracks in the UK every Sunday, 5-7pm. The fast-paced, non-stop weekly show will be hosted by the artists whose tunes feature within the chart. The TV chart with Rickie and Melvin starts on Thursday morning at 10am.

Andy Roberts, group programme director at Kiss, told us: "This is one hell of a big chart – Rickie and Melvin will present the Official Biggest tunes in the UK each fortnight on Kiss TV and Box TV and with the weekly show on Kiss radio – that's over 4.7 million viewers and listeners who will get a chance to hear and see the most wanted 40 tunes each week."

Simon Sadler, director of music and commissioning at Box TV, added: "We’re hugely excited about Kiss’ UKHot40 Big Beats Chart – it’s another great example of a highly productive cross-platform partnership for Box TV. Rickie and Melvin have been well-known, and well-liked, personalities to the audience of Kiss radio for a while now and we know that they will bring that popularity, energy and music knowledge to Kiss TV. The countdown is guaranteed to give viewers the biggest dance, hip-hop and R&B music videos in the UK."
