JACK fm Bristol announced a new breakfast show this morning, starting on January 20th with Downsy, Alice and Simon.
Downsy and Alice are current hosts and will continue but Richard Johnson will be replaced by former UTV, Heart and Viking FM producer Simon Green.
Richard is also Group Creative Director of JACK fm Bristol’s parent company Celador, and will now concentrate on that role as the company expands.
Speaking of Richard’s departure from the show, Regional Programme Manager and Breakfast show anchor Ian Downs told RadioToday: “After 4 years on the air together, I’ve finally managed to convince Richard to get off my back and go and do something more constructive with his time. Quite frankly his obsession with rocket cars and monkeys just became too much. I can’t wait for Simon to start, he’s a professional producer for a start, and he supports Manchester United, so I’m automatically a big fan.”
