Nicky Horne reduces to weekly TeamRock slot
Nicky Horne is to be given a once a week slot instead of his current daily show in a schedule revamp at TeamRock Radio.
Nicky has been hosting the Classic Rock Evening Show since the station started two years ago, weekdays from 6pm but will be only heard each Thursday at the later start time of 9pm from September.
Last July, Nicky Horne signed for at least another two years at the station, which at the time was broadcasting nationally on DAB. Before TeamRock, Nicky was at Planet Rock for eight years and was previously at BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio 2, Virgin, and Capital.
A new evening show with Sophie K will start next month, each weekday 7pm till 9pm.
Programme Controller JRock says: “We’ve taken the decision to streamline our evening and weekend schedule in order to provide enhanced, tailored, on-demand content for each of our core brands. Classic Rock, Metal Hammer, Prog and Blues will each go down to one show a week – but don’t worry, we won’t be changing who presents them.
“Sophie K moves up to present a new evening show, with the biggest bands, hottest interviews and new music – from deathcore to pop punk, and everything in between.”
