The Revolution owner Steve Penk has announced on-air that he’s handing over the Breakfast show to Elliot Eastwick, as part of a new schedule.
He’s been on-air at the station he bought in 2008 for almost five years, in which time he’s become a Reverend, played Van Halen’s ‘jump’ when news of a suicide attempt held up traffic on the M60, and doubled the audience of within three years.
The new schedule puts Big Al, who was sacked from the station in 2011 after an apparent fall-out, back on a daily show, followed by Brendan Kearney on drivetime.
Steve told RadioToday: “The time was right to move over and concentrate on taking the business forward. Presenting the breakfast show along with running the station for the last five years has been fun but the show is in good hands with Elliot.”
