Dev heads to Radio 1 weekends
BBC 1Xtra early breakfast presenter Dev is to host weekend breakfast on BBC Radio 1, starting on July 1st.
Dev, who has been at 1Xtra since the station launched in 2002, replaces Nick Grimshaw who has since moved to evenings on Radio 1.
Dev says: "This is a very exciting chapter in my broadcasting career and something I have been working hard towards. I'm over the moon about joining the Radio 1 family and look forward to brightening up peoples mornings on the weekend!"
Ben Cooper, Deputy Controller, Radio 1 and 1Xtra, says: "BBC 1Xtra is a fantastic place for new presenters to establish themselves and Dev has done just that. I'm keen for talent to grow on 1Xtra and move through to Radio 1 so I'm delighted to welcome him onboard."
As a result, 1Xtra's breakfast show with Trevor Nelson and Gemma Cairney will now start at 7am each weekday.
