Global to launch Heart Dance with Toby Anstis on Breakfast

Heart Dance, a new service from Global, is launching on DAB digital radio across the UK this Friday 21st June.

The Club Classics formatted station will have former Heart presenters Toby Anstis on the breakfast show, and Lucy Horobin on afternoon drive. Lucy will also be presenting a weekend show every Saturday from 10am – 1pm.

Heart Dance will play club classics from the likes of Basement Jaxx, Daft Punk, Ne-Yo, Ultra Naté, Fatboy Slim and Armand Van Helden.

On Friday and Saturday nights, Heart’s Club Classics show will be simulcast on both Heart and Heart Dance, with Toby Anstis hosting every Friday from 7pm and Pandora on Saturday from 7pm.

James Rea, Managing Editor of Heart tells RadioToday: “Heart Dance will be a brilliant addition to the Heart brand – just in time for the Summer!

“Listeners will be able to re-live the greatest times of their life with the biggest club classic dance tunes of all time. I’m delighted we’ll also have a terrific line-up that includes some of Heart’s top presenters including Toby Anstis, Lucy Horobin and Pandora.”

Toby Anstis says: “To present the breakfast show on a brand-new national radio station, playing the music I have always loved with a passion, is a dream! To top it off, we also have my good mate Lucy Horobin getting listeners home at drive time.

“Heart is my natural home and a place I love. I can’t wait to get started, waking up the UK with some bangers from 7am on Friday 21st June live on Heart Dance!”

Heart now has a number of spin-off brands, all broadcasting nationally on D1 – Heart 80s, Heart extra and now Heart Dance.
