heat radio signs Westlife star Kian Egan
Kian Egan is joining heat radio for a new Saturday afternoon show, starting this weekend.
The former Westlife star will play music from the 90s and 00s, along with today’s music. He’ll share stories from his time on the road with Westlife, to life as a solo artist.
This isn’t the first job in broadcasting for Kian though – he’s had repeat appearances as a coach on RTE One’s The Voice of Ireland. He has since co-presented the bootcamp episodes of The Xtra Factor with Caroline Flack and quickly secured a regular slot every Friday on ITV1’s This Morning with his own X Factor gossip segment before going on to win I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here in 2013.
Music and Content Director for heat radio, Ric Blaxill said “Kian is a big signing for the station and his arrival will add even more strength to the talent on our roster. He’s got a real charm about him and some great stories up his sleeve to tell in between the music. Weekends on heat Radio just got bigger!”
Also, heat radio will air the Best of Ryan Seacrest every Sunday from 4-6pm and will tie in all of the highlights from ‘On Air with Ryan Seacrest’ during the week.
