Former Capital mid-morning presenter Roberto is to take over the evening show on the Heart network, replacing Simon Dale.
Simon is leaving Heart after three years to “pursue other interests” and will host his last show tonight (Friday).
Roberto starts his new show this weekend, and will run from 7pm, Sunday to Thursday, and Club Classics from 7pm on Friday.
Speaking about his new role, Roberto said: “I’m so excited to be joining the Heart family, being alongside presenters such as Emma Bunton and Jason Donovan. My show is going to be really interactive, lots of fun and I can’t wait to get started!”
Global Radio’s Director of Broadcasting Richard Park said: “Roberto has a proven track history at Global Radio as a popular, talented and enthusiastic presenter and I know that he will be a hit with our Heart listeners. We’d like to thank Simon Dale for all his hard work over the last three years and we wish him every success for the future.”
Radio Today has learnt that other weekday schedule changes are planned for Heart but Global Radio declined to comment at this stage.
