Juice 107.2 starts a new show today called Brighton Nights – a show dedicated to Brighton’s live performance, arts and culture scene.
The station has hired comedian Romesh Ranganathan for the gig and content will include local guests and what’s on information.
Romesh Ranganathan is a Sussex born stand-up comedian and actor has appeared on Mock the Week, Soccer AM, Russell Howard’s Good News, and Sweat the Small Stuff. He was also nominated for Best Newcomer at the 2013 Edinburgh Comedy Awards and is currently a regular on Stand Up for the Week.
Romesh said: “I started off my stand-up career in the venues of Brighton and have had so many brilliant experiences here. I’m really looking forward to broadcasting to the good people of Brighton every week night.”
Programme Manager at Juice 107.2 Tony Marks told RadioToday: “We’ve been fans of Romesh from the local comedy scene for ages now and always knew it was only a matter of time before we started seeing him all over the TV. We are delighted to welcome him to the Juice 107.2 team and have no doubt that his show will be a brilliant listen.”
The show is sponsored by Brighton Dome & Brighton Festival, where CEO Andrew Comben said: “We are delighted to be partnering with Juice 107.2 to bring this new and exciting arts and culture resource to the city. We are sure that it will be an exciting platform to showcase both touring and local talents and give arts and cultural organisations across the city a great opportunity to reach new audiences and help us to jointly develop fantastic content for the show. We hope that lots of people will tune in to hear more about all the great range of events taking place here in Brighton & Hove.”
Jason Edge, Marketing Director at Mayo Wynne Baxter said: “We have worked with Juice 107.2 for many years now and we are delighted to be associated with this exciting new show.”
