The Vodafone Big Top 40 to stay on a Sunday

Commercial radio’s networked chart show, The Vodafone Big Top 40, is staying in the traditional Sunday afternoon spot.

RadioToday revealed in April that Global, producers of the chart on behalf of the network, were undecided about the future direction of the programme following Radio 1’s decision to move their chart show to Friday afternoons.

Global’s Founder and Executive President Ashley Tabor, speaking with BBC Radio 1’s Greg James at the Student Radio Conference, was asked if he has any plans to also make the move. “I don’t know yet, we haven’t decided.” Ashley answered.

But today, just days before Radio 1’s new Official Chart moves, Global has confirmed to RadioToday that it is keeping the chart on a Sunday.

A Vodafone Big Top 40 spokesperson said: “Sunday is the home of the charts. The Vodafone Big Top 40 is still the only place you can enjoy the UK’s hottest hit music almost a week before any other chart and includes the official iTunes top 10, every Sunday from 4pm to 7pm.”
