Simon Bates takes on a new breakfast show

Smooth presenter Simon Bates is now hosting a new separate daily breakfast show on Smooth 70s at the same time as his show on Smooth Radio.

And whilst the station isn’t shouting about the new addition to the all-70s station, they have confirmed to Radio Today that Simon is providing “a little content” for the service.

Radio Today readers have been in touch to ask if the show is a simulcast but by all accounts it appears to be voice-tracked.

Smooth 70s launched the day after boxing day last year using space previously occupied by Smooth Christmas.

    I guessed that before long they would try to introduce presenters in some way. But it is such a shame they have gone for the cheapest option of voice-tracking using an existing Smooth presenter, even if in this case, he is one of the most popular, and probably most apporpriate for this type of station.
