Steph and Dom Parker, famous from their appearances on Channel 4’s Gogglebox, are taking over the 10am-1pm weekend slot on digital station talkRADIO.
It’s the couple’s first radio show, with Wireless Group promising it will be “…a hilarious take on some of the quirkiest stories in the news and what made the pair, gawp, giggle and grumble over the past week.”
Steph and Dom will be on the air on both Saturdays and Sundays, from this weekend (3rd February). The weekend changes come following a recent shuffle of the weekday schedule which saw Julia Hartley-Brewer move to breakfast and Eamonn Holmes join the station for Drivetime.
Steph Parker said: “Only talkRADIO could be brave enough to unleash us live on the airwaves. We have the perfect antidote to your weekend hangovers as Gogglebox meets radio… or should that be Newsnight meets Noel’s House Party… We’ll hunt down all the quirkiest stories and must-watch telly of the week for a leisurely late morning of carnage, Steph and Dom style.”
Dom added: “10am at the weekend…who agreed to that? I’m going to kill her!”
talkRADIO programme director Dennie Morris told RadioToday: “Steph and Dom are the cherry on the cake of our talkRADIO refresh. With hard-hitting no-nonsense breakfast news from Julia Hartley-Brewer, the dulcet drivetime tones of Eamonn Holmes and now the nation’s favourite straight talking couple at the weekend on talkRADIO. Steph and Dom are guaranteed to get you talking and keep you laughing.”
