Former XFM, Kerrang! and KISS presenter Ugly Phil O’Neil is joining Fix Radio to host a new Breakfast Show starting in June.
Ugly Phil has most recently been in Australia working at a number of radio stations including Triple M and SAFM in Adelaide, FOX FM Melbourne, B105 Brisbane and has hosted Breakfast on Triple M Sydney, the Hot30 Countdown and Drive at Nova 969.
It was reported by our colleagues at RadioToday Australia that he was leaving Triple M last month and heading back to the UK for a new gig.
Phil said about Fix, “I don’t think it needs Fixing coz it’s the perfect station already. I can’t wait to join Fix Radio’s breakfast show, and I think I’ll be a perfect fit because people have been telling me that I’m a tool for years.”
Fix Radio’s Program Director, Graham Mack said: “Great radio stations are built on great talent and Ugly Phil is one of the world’s best. It’s brilliant that he’s joining our line-up that also includes Russ and Jono, formerly of Virgin Radio and Clive Holland from BBC TV’s Cowboy Trap.”
Ugly Phil’s first Breakfast Show will be heard on Fix Radio on DAB in London and Manchester on Monday June 10th.
Current breakfast presenters Trev & Ben are moving to an extended Brew & Banter show, from 10am to noon.
