Footballer Peter Crouch to cover on Radio X

England and Stoke City striker Peter Crouch is making his radio presenting debut with Radio X, doing two weeks of cover for Gordon Smart.

He’ll look after the weekday evening show 7-10pm and Sunday afternoons for a fortnight, starting on Monday 24th July while Gordon is on holiday.

Peter Crouch said: “I love Radio X and the music the station plays so I’m excited about being in the hot seat. I have a few stories I’m looking forward to sharing and some visitors I’m looking forward to welcoming to the studio. All will be revealed next week!”

Matt Deverson, managing editor of Radio X, said: “As well as being one of the best loved footballers of his generation, Peter Crouch is well known for his passion for music and legendary sense of humour. He is a huge fan of the music we play on Radio X so I know he’s looking forward to entertaining listeners, playing his favourite records as well as revealing a story or two from his incredible career. We can’t wait for him to get behind the mic for what I’m sure will be a hugely entertaining couple of weeks.”
