Global welcomes Smooth Radio to London HQ

Smooth Radio has made the move to Leicester Square this week, and has just announced Tina Hobley is joining the line-up.

The television actress will host a weekly show, Smooth Sundays, from 9am till 12pm starting this weekend.

New owners Global Radio say Tina will be playing the best music from the past five decades as she makes her radio debut.

Tina is known for a number of television roles, including Coronation Street and Holby City.

“I love listening to music on a Sunday morning, so this is a dream for me. I can’t wait to present my first show on Smooth Radio,” Tina said.

Richard Park, Global’s Director of Broadcasting, said: “Following the launch of our brand new studios in London, we are thrilled to welcome a new presenter to the Smooth Radio family. Tina is a natural radio presenter and together with the perfect mix of music for Sunday mornings, I know that our listeners will love her new show.”

Other changes to the weekend schedule are expected to be announced shortly.

Leicester Square-based Global Radio purchased Smooth Radio (as part of GMG Radio) last June but the two companies have been operating in a Hold Separate situation ever since due to competition issues in seven areas.

The Competition Commission doesn’t have an issue with the London or West Midlands markets, but have said Global Radio must sell some stations, including Smooth Radio in a number of regions.

Global Radio and the Competition Commission are in court today at 10:30am for a Competition Appeal Tribunal which is expected to take place over two days.
