Former XFM presenter Jason Manford is to host a new weekend show on Absolute Radio next year.
Jason will present the show from Bauer’s Manchester HQ, home of Key 103, Key 2 and Key 3 each Sunday morning from 8am till 11am from January 10th.
He joins a roster of other comedians and presenters including Frank Skinner, Christian O’Connell, Rob Beckett, Geoff Lloyd and Andy Bush as the station aims to delivers comedic talent 7 days a week.
Paul Sylvester, Absolute Radio Content Director said: “Jason fits the Absolute Radio mould perfectly. He’s a brilliant broadcaster with first class comic talent, he’s a family man, he’s relatable and he’ll be able to connect perfectly with our audience of reluctant adults.”
Jason’s last regular radio show was at XFM Manchester but he left in May 2008.
