Smooth Radio London is putting Tina Hobley on a daily show from January, in addition to her Sunday daytime show.
Tina will be replacing Anthony Davis who is moving to the USA with his family.
Tina has starred in a variety of television series from Coronation Street to Holby City. She made her radio-presenting debut on Smooth in 2013 as the new host of Smooth Sunday.
Tina Hobley said: “As a Londoner, hosting a drive time show in the world’s greatest city is a dream come true. I hope listeners will hear how much I love the show and that being one of few girls out of all the London drive time presenters will give people a real alternative. I want people to tune in and relax at the end of their busy day, to listen to me and to the great music I’ll be playing.”
Sam Jackson, Managing Editor of Smooth, said: “Over the past three years, Tina has proved to be a very popular member of the Smooth family by delivering outstanding growth for her Sunday show. Smooth is now the UK’s third biggest commercial radio brand and Tina has been a major part of our success. We look forward to her delivering similar results for The Smooth Drive Home in London when she starts her brand new show in January.”
Tina will be heard in London on 102.2FM / DAB and across the rest of the Smooth network of 24 AM transmitters. Regional drive shows will continue on Smooth’s regional FM stations.
