Showbiz editor from The Sun joins Xfm
Newspaper showbiz journalist Gordon Smart is joining Xfm to present a new weekly show on Sunday afternoons.
The Sun ‘Bizarre’ column editor joins the Global Radio station from this weekend in the 12-3pm slot which will air on both the London and Manchester FM licences as well as on DAB across the UK.
Global say the show will feature guest interviews, topical chat, intimate live sessions, and ‘all of the biggest and best news and gossip from the most exclusive rock ‘n’ roll parties around’.
Gordon says: “Joining Xfm is up there with the day I got my first BMX. Sunday hangovers should never be suffered in silence and Xfm has helped me get through plenty of them over the years. Now it’s my turn to crack open the brilliant x-list, play some of the celebrity chats from my travels with The Sun and soothe some of those sore heads. I can’t wait to get started.”
Xfm Programme Director Andy Ashton told us: “Gordon is one of the most connected and in-demand showbiz interviewers in the UK and comes with one of the most enviable and jam-packed music and entertainment little black books. Full to the brim with A-list guests and backstage gossip from the biggest events around the world, Smart on Sunday is set to be a must-listen show for our audience across the UK.”
