After a period of covering maternity leave Mark Kaye has now been confirmed as full time Programme Controller at Juice FM.
Breakfast duo Adam & Leanne have also just signed two year deals keeping them at the station till 2014.
Johnny Collins has also be appointed as full time Programming Assistant to support Mark in his new role. Johnny has been at the station on a freelance basis for a number of years.
Mark said “it’s a real honour to be given the job on a permanent basis and I’m really exited about just how far we can take Juice. It’s probably one of the most sought after programmer roles in the country as we have no group networking and no group playlist so you really can put your mark on the station”
Also this week, as Leanne takes a holiday, a number of celebs from Hollyoaks and singer Lemar is helping Adam co-host breakfast. Guests hosts include Stephanie Davis who plays Sinead O’Connor and Tosin Cole who plays Neil Cooper.
Adam Said: “With Leanne being off I wanted to glam the studio up with Hollyoaks ladies, unfortunately 2 of the days are covered by the lads! They all listen to Juice FM so we thought it would be fun to have them on the air with us. Steph was brilliant on Monday morning and did an amazing Nicky Minaj impression for the Juice listeners!!”
Graham Sarath said “What Mark has achieved in his time so far is nothing short of miraculous and also testament to what a great team we have a Juice in all departments. We’ve got big plans for the station and I’m excited to be working with such a talented programmer to continue this incredible journey”
Juice FM has a reach of 204,000 and 2.1 million hours in its Liverpool TSA. During Mark’s time covering the role the station has achieved three Sony Radio Academy Awards nominations winning a Silver for Breakfast Show of the Year in 2011 and Station of the Year Gold, earlier this year.
