Heart South Coast breakfast presenters JK and Lucy will take over drivetime on London’s Heart, replacing Neil Bentley from January 7th 2013.
The new drivetime show launches the same day as Emma Bunton joins Jamie Theakston on the breakfast show following the departure of Harriet Scott.
JK and Lucy already host a weekend breakfast show on the Heart network and have recently covered breakfast in London.
The station has also hired TOWIE actor Mark Wright to host the Friday and Saturday evening Club Classics show between 7pm and 9pm, kicking off in the new year following his Christmas Eve and Christmas Day special shows.
Other Christmas specials on Heart include Myleene Klass presenting Myleene’s Klass Christmas, on Christmas Eve from midday, featuring exclusive performances from guests including The X Factor’s Ella Henderson. Stephen Mulhern & Emma Willis will be hosting their own Christmas special from 10am on Boxing Day, whilst Olly Murs, Michael Buble and Shane Richie also feature on the festive schedule.
Global Radio’s Director of Broadcasting Richard Park said: “We are thrilled with the new faces joining Heart this Christmas and New Year. What a great way to end a successful year and kick start 2013!”
