Russell Brand is to host a new 11am till 1pm Sunday show on Radio X starting this weekend.
It’ll be his first regular show since he left Radio 2 in 2008, although he did host a few shows on talkSPORT in 2010 and a one-off programme for XFM in 2013.
Russell says: “I’m going to be on Radio X – the show will be about joy, unity and togetherness. Sorry for any offence in advance.”
Matt Deverson, Radio X Managing Editor, said: “Radio X is home to big personalities and we’re incredibly excited to be welcoming Russell back for his live radio return. He’s a huge talent and his Sunday morning show is going to become a must-listen for fans of his irreverent humour. He’s part of the Radio X family and we can’t wait to have him back on air.”
