Jazz FM has teamed up with global foreign exchange broker Alpari UK to create The Alpari Business Breakfast.
The new half hour show starts on Monday 1st December and marks the return to Jazz FM of Michael Wilson, the Global Business and Economics Editor of Arise TV and former Sky News Business Editor.
Airing weekdays at 6am, it features news-making guests, covers the daily business agenda and features the latest market news from Alpari UK’s market analysts.
The annual six-figure deal between Jazz FM and Alpari UK also includes business bulletins at strategic points through the day including lunchtime updates as the City takes a break and a round-up as the City closes featuring the latest market news.
The first week features jazz-loving former Chancellor Kenneth Clarke MP as special guest with his customary forthright opinions including his current take on George Osborne and the forthcoming Autumn Statement.
Jazz FM Content Director Nick Pitts told RadioToday: “This is a triple whammy for us. We’re delighted to have Michael Wilson back on Jazz FM; we welcome a new long-term content partner to the station in Alpari UK, plus we have a new unique programme for commercial radio.”
Alpari UK’s Chief Market Analyst James Hughes: “We’re really excited to be getting involved in this unique project alongside Jazz FM, and particularly the chance to discuss and dissect the latest financial and economic news. It offers us a different platform to take financial trading to a wider audience and really generate further interest and awareness.”
