Daytime presenter changes for Magic 105.4

Magic’s afternoon presenter Paul Phear is leaving the station later this month, as Neil Fox and Gary Vincent get new time slots.

The station will shift from 5-9am for breakfast to 6-10am, followed by Gary Vincent 10am-2pm instead of 9am-1pm. A new afternoon show will air 2-5pm followed by Angie Greaves on the More Music Drivetime 5pm till 8pm. Danny Pietroni will continue on evenings.

Steve Parkinson, Managing Director, Bauer Radio London, said: “We would like to thank Paul for the great job he has done at Magic over the last ten years and we wish him every success in the future.”

Also today, Neil Fox has signed up for another two years at the station and will rename his breakfast show Foxy in the Morning from Monday (6th Jan). It’ll have a new feature “Test of Time” at 9am and Verity Geere will continue as news and information presenter.

Neil Fox said: “I’m delighted to sign for another two years to Magic, and for my show to lead London’s biggest commercial station. The mission of the new show is to be the friendliest and warmest out there, in tune with what London and the UK is waking up to. We want to create an optimistic, upbeat and fun tone which wakes you up and gets you to work and we can’t wait to get cracking from the 6th!”

Steve Parkinson added: “Neil is a consummate professional and he is one of the most fantastic talents in our industry, whether presenting to his audience or in front of our advertisers or hosting events – a true all rounder. We are delighted he will remain within Bauer and Magic. Moving his show from 6-10am also means Foxy in the Morning immediately reaches a wider audience and so provides even better opportunities for our advertising partners.”
