Life after FM for digital Kerrang! Radio

As Kerrang! 105.2 enters its final full day of FM broadcasting, RadioToday brings you details of the digital-only Kerrang! Radio.

kerrangradioA new schedule will kick in from Monday, with current drive-time host Kate Lawler taking over Breakfast.

All content will come from London with most of it voicetracked.

Kate said: “This is a brave new dawn for Kerrang! Radio and I can’t wait to kick-start listeners’ week days with a rock and roll wakeup call! The whole team is really excited about the awesome new line-up for the station – believe me we are all gonna be ready to rock from June 17th!”

Jake Thomson will do middays and Loz Guest will host afternoon ‘drive’ 2-6pm whilst Johnny Doom will present the evening show from 7pm. Johnny will also present a weekend dose of the Rock n Roll Years on Sundays 10am-2pm where he will play songs from one particular year over the past four decades.

Other parts of the new schedule includes Alex Baker presenting two regular shows – The Unsigned Show (Sundays 7pm-10pm) and The Alex Baker Show (Saturdays 2pm-6pm).

The Kerrang! Chart with Dan Hudson will air each Saturdays 10am-2pm and Klub Kerrang! with Katie Parsons will be broadcast on Saturdays 7pm-10pm.

Ric Blaxill, Music and Content Director, Kerrang! Radio, said: “We’re really proud to reveal this fantastic new presenter line-up for Kerrang! It’s just what fans are looking for – great rock music delivered by much loved, well-known, funny and passionate DJs.”

The changes to Kerrang!, available on DAB and online, see it come more into line with the artists featured in Kerrang! magazine – from Paramore, Biffy Clyro, and Frank Turner to Don Broco, 30 Seconds To Mars, and Muse.

Kerrang!’s 105.2 frequency in the West Midlands will be a simulcast of Planet Rock from London from Friday afternoon.

Rock Dog and the Rocking Horse do not feature in the new schedule.

    Sounds like putting a spin on nicking the frequency for a granddad radio station and trying to put together a digital only station on the cheap in the aftermath.

    Kate Lawler used to do the Breakfast Show with Tim Shaw, didn’t she? That didn’t end well!

    Is the new Kerrang Radio automated to bits?

  • Johnny OneTime

    They’re not fooling anybody. VT is not real radio, and we all know it.

    Are they going to make money from kerange on freevew & some DAB ???.

  • Darth Fader

    I bet in a year or so this station will close.

    Lots of VT is a last resort.

    Would this be down to the presenters still having contracts?
    As there is no room on Planet Rock for them (apart from overnight) so have them voice-track their shows until their contracts are up.

    Sacking the presenters would cost too much.
