Xfm’s breakfast presenter Jon Holmes will be back at the Radio Festival this year, co-hosting with Fi Glover and Jane Garvey.
Jon has previously hosted a session or two but it will be the first time he’s co-hosted, with organisers promising Jon will provide some fun at the festival.
Radio Festival Chair Chris Burns said: “We’ve tried to put together a Festival that reflects the diversity of the industry, as well as calling on talent from other creative industries.
“Jon Holmes promises to bring some fun to the sessions, while offering both experienced and budding presenters some great advice and ideas from his many years in the industry.”
Jon will also be talking to iconic comedy writer, John Lloyd, in an intimate conversation where they will discuss John’s career.
While comedy and entertainment will play a major role in the Festival, more controversial and contemporary subjects will also be discussed and debated with leading players from UK and international radio. These include censorship, BBC payouts, ‘state of the industry’ opinion from inside and outside the sector and how radio can ensure it receives a fair share of customers’ advertising spend.
The Radio Festival will be held from Monday 14th October to Wednesday 16th October at The Lowry, Salford Quays.
