Smooth Radio celebrates one year anniversary

Cakes with faces of presenters Myleene Klass and Kate Garraway have been handed out to staff at Smooth Radio in London to celebrate 12 months since its relaunch.

It’s a year since Myleene joined the station for a weekend show, Kate Garraway joined for weekday mornings, and the station introduced the new strapline Your Relaxing Music Mix.

Kate Garraway said: “I can’t believe that it’s been a year since the Smooth Radio bosses let me loose on the air! I have loved every minute, playing great songs from my favourite artists such as Lionel Richie, Whitney Houston and Michael Buble, as well as getting to know the Smooth listeners and sharing far too much about myself!”

The changes happened shortly after previous presenters such as Simon Bates, Pat Sharp, Kid Jensen and Lynn Parsons departed.

The network now has 4.8m listeners across the country and Smooth London reaches 760,000 listeners every week – compared with 441,000 a year ago. Global owns Smooth London, West Midlands and Glasgow (plus AM services) whilst Communicorp UK owns Smooth East Midlands, North West and North East

Smooth told us: “To celebrate our first birthday, we gave Myleene and Kate cakes bearing their faces. At first, they were a bit freaked out by the idea of eating their cake faces but once they tasted the delicious and ever so slightly boozy chocolate cakes they quickly changed their minds!”
