Mim Shaikh is to present 1Xtra’s Saturday show for six months after A.Dot’s move to weekdays replacing Sarah-Jane Crawford.
He started at BBC Asian Network before presenting the 4-7pm Saturday show on 1Xtra last November, as well as being a fill in for DJ Ace.
Mim says: I’m grateful to be given my very own show on 1Xtr, a station I feel so culturally attached to.
“I started volunteering at Radio 1’s Hackney Academy and now fast forward a few years, I’m living the reality I once dreamed of. Can’t wait to bring some laughter, entertainment and the best music to the national airwaves.”
