In:Demand, currently two different networked evening shows for England and Scotland, is to combine to create one show from February 17th.
England presenter Alex James and Scotland presenter Romeo will be replaced by Stu Tolan who joins Bauer Media from More FM in New Zealand.
Stu is originally from Glasgow and has been working abroad for the last 15 years, hosting morning show on ZM and The Edge.
Alex will stay with Bauer, hosting weekend breakfast on Key 103 whilst Romeo will also host weekend shows on Clyde 1 and daytime cover.
Stu said: “I’m so excited to be returning home to the UK and taking control of In:Demand. I can’t wait to bring our listeners the biggest stars and play the hottest music on the planet!”
The new In:Demand will run across 15 of the 17 stations in Bauer Media’s Place Portfolio in Northern England and Scotland, as well as The Hits Radio. Bauer tells us it wil be a new music and personality driven evening show with exclusive artist performances, prizes and interviews.
Owen Ryan, Group Content Director, Bauer Radio North of England and Scotland, commented: “Stu’s appointment, with his fantastic experience and fresh outlook, is a brilliant addition to the In:Demand team and we welcome him back to the UK! This appointment further demonstrates Bauer Media’s passion to provide local audiences with fantastic music and entertainment.”
