Russell Brand returns to radio with Global

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.”

    Not sure if Sunday mornings are the right slot for Russell Brand.

    Hope Radio X remembers to check each recording before it goes out!

      It won’t be recorded (at least, not initially) it’s live. Also Russell did Sunday mornings on 6 Music pretty successfully, so it may be ok.
