Jeremy Kyle is returning to his first love – radio – with a brand new weekend show on talkRADIO.
Jezza started his broadcasting career in radio, and is well remembered in the industry for his late-night phone-in shows, Late n Live and Jezza’s Confessions, both networked across a number of commercial radio stations including BRMB and Century FM.
In 1997 he joined BRMB in Birmingham, presenting Late & Live and Jezza’s Jukebox. He met his second wife Carla when she entered and won the Two Strangers and a Wedding contest run by the station.
Jezza also worked at Orchard FM, Leicester Sound and Invicta FM in the 90s before moving on to Virgin Radio, Capital FM and Essex FM in the noughties.
The new show will air between 1pm and 4pm each Saturday, starting on August 18th.
Jeremy Kyle said: “Radio was my first love as a broadcaster and where it all began for my on-air career. I can’t wait to return with talkRADIO, reviewing the week’s biggest stories and unpicking the issues with some big name guests too.
“As with all of my shows, audiences can expect open, honest opinion, a direct approach and no doubt a few a disagreements along the way,” Kyle added.
talkRADIO programme director Dennie Morris added: “talkRADIO aims to get the nation talking and that’s exactly what we’ll get with Jeremy, who is synonymous with up-front, unfiltered opinion. This broadcasting legend will hugely appeal to our listeners and bring in new audiences with his no-nonsense attitude and candid, outspoken views.”
His last radio show was at talkSPORT ten years ago when he hosted The Jeremy Kyle Sunday Sports Show. He’s been hosting The Jeremy Kyle Show on ITV since 2005.
