Robin Galloway to leave Bauer for Heart
Robin Galloway is returning to his old breakfast show on Scotland’s regional FM radio station Heart, replacing Ewen Cameron.
Ewen Cameron took over the show from Robin in 2011 after Robin and his former producer Barrie left following a practical joke which went wrong. Robin challenged Barrie to streak past a studio window where Labour leader Ed Miliband was being interviewed.
Robin has most recently been presenting the networked breakfast show across Bauer’s Greatest Hits Network on AM, and before that was on drive at Clyde 1. He was still on-air this morning with Bauer and his moving date is unknown at this point.
Ewen’s co-presenter Cat Harvey is still listed on the Heart Scotland website but Ewen has been removed, suggesting Robin will be re-united with Cat.
Robin’s return to the station isn’t the first time he’s made a comeback. He originally joined the frequency in 1995 when it was Scot FM, but left in 1997. He returned in 2000 and stayed until owners GMG Radio let him go.
Richard Park, group executive director & director of broadcasting at Global told RadioToday: “Robin is one of the top broadcasters in the country. I’m confident he will be very popular with Heart listeners right across Scotland and we’re delighted to have him on board.”
A Heart Scotland spokesperson added: “Ewen Cameron will be leaving Scotland’s Heart Breakfast to pursue other opportunities.”
Graham Bryce, Group MD North of England and Scotland said: “We wish Robin Galloway the very best for the future. We’ll be unveiling exciting new plans for the Greatest Hits Breakfast Show very soon”.
