Heart will be making a few schedule changes in the new year, including Jason Donovan and Mark Wright coming off the schedule.
Jason is taking a break, with a view to heading back at some point in the future, whilst Mark Wright is taking a step back to concentrate on his commitments in America.
Christmas Eve will mark five years since Mark first joined Heart – he presents “Club Classics” every Friday and Saturday evening between 7pm and 9pm. Jason joined Heart 10 years ago and took a short break in 2013 whilst he was on tour with Priscilla Queen of the Desert. He currently presents on Sunday night and has a Sunday morning show on Heart 80s.
James Rea, Heart’s new Managing Editor, told RadioToday: “Mark’s commitments in the US mean he can’t do his regular Heart show. We’ve loved having him as part of the family and we look forward to working with him again.
“Jason is taking a break and we hope to work with him again in the future.
“We’re looking forward to a big 2018 on Heart and we’ll be making more announcements soon.”
