Chris Moyles plans to double XFM audience

Chris Moyles admits he was sacked from BBC Radio 1 but plans to double XFM’s breakfast audience with his new radio show.

In a revealing interview in The Sun, the new Radio X presenter also confirms he’s in charge of his new show and he has the freedom to do what he wants.

Highlights from the interview include:

  • Chris was sacked by Ben Cooper a year before he wanted to leave BBC Radio 1
  • He planned to take a year off but it went too quickly so he took another year off
  • Chris was offered his pick of any other role on Radio 1
  • Global is spending millions on the new station nationally
  • Chris wants to double the audience that exists on that show now
  • Radio 1 producer Pippa Taylor will run the show and newsreader Dominic Byrne will be back
  • Comedy Dave and Aled Jones won’t be joining Radio X
  • Chris has carte blanche on the new show

You can read the full interview in The Sun newspaper tomorrow, or see it online now.
