Paul Anthony to do Planet Rock breakfast
National digital radio station Planet Rock has announced a change to its breakfast show, with Paul Anthony taking over from Lucio in the New Year.
Paul joins from GMG Radio’s Rock Radio, where he most recently did the evening show until the rebrand to Real Radio XS in September.
He has been presenting rock shows for over 25 years after starting out at Signal Radio in 1985. He’s also reported on the British and World Superbike Championships for radio.
Paul told us: “For me this is like winning the lottery. If you are a rock fan, Planet Rock is the only place to be – and for once the timing was right for both of us. I am really looking forward to waking up the entire UK with the best music in the world. It doesn’t get much better than that.”
Planet Rock Programme Director Trevor White added: “Paul is a great fit for us – he is exactly the talent we’ve been looking for and he is ready to take breakfast to its rightful place at Planet Rock. He brings an encyclopaedic knowledge of rock, unbridled enthusiasm and a contact book that reads like a who’s who of rock.”
Paul Anthony takes over the breakfast show on Planet Rock from 3rd January at 6am. Lucio leaves the station when his contract ends after a year on the show. He joined as the breakfast show went live last January, taking over from Alice Cooper who’s syndicated recorded show moved to the evening schedule.
