Dave Pearce exits Radio 1

Radio 1 presenter Dave Pearce is to leave Radio 1 in October after 13 years at the station.

The news comes as the station announces changes to its night-time schedules.

The changes see new presenters Kissy Sell Out and Kutski receive their own regular shows and 1Xtra's MistaJam joining the station, while Tim Westwood's Saturday show will be extended by one hour.

Ben Cooper, head of programmes said: "Radio 1 is here to champion the very best in new music and new DJ talent and I believe that these schedule changes mean we can continue to do this even more effectively."

In his time at the station, Dave Pearce presented early breakfast and deputised for Chris Evans on weekday breakfast.

Pearce said: "It's been an incredible 13 years at Radio 1, of all the shows I've presented Dance Anthems is the one I'm most proud of creating.

"It's time to move on but I have some exciting new radio projects to come. I would like to thank the teams who have worked with me over the years for making it such fun."
