Male Radio 1 presenters are getting the weekend off this weekend as the station extends its International Women’s Day celebration by having women on-air for 39 hours non-stop.

The station today announced that in addition to the two 12-hour all-female evening line-ups from 7pm to 7am on Friday 7 and Saturday 8 March, Radio 1 will also host an all-female daytime line-up on International Women’s Day (Saturday 8 March).

Women presenters including Gemma Cairney, Jameela Jamil and Adele Roberts will take over the daytime airwaves on Radio 1 from 7am to 7pm this Saturday. There will also be a special Radio 1’s Dance Anthems hosted by Annie Mac.

Jameela Jamil says: “I’m so happy to be a part of Radio 1’s 39-hour-long celebration of International Women’s Day. I’m REALLY looking forward to hosting alongside some of my fellow Radio 1 and 1Xtra female DJs.”
