    The lovely Harriet managed to present a solo show on Viking FM and Virgin (on a Saturday as I recall), so why does she need a co-presenter in the form of Will, Matt or Ronan

    1. David says

      Breakfast shows often have a Duo presenting them. Even Chris Moyles has a big team to bounce the conversation on with.

    Glad to see Matt has got a job I was getting worried he might be feeling the pinch as you never seem to hear about him nowadays!

    I know it’s temporary but I wish Magic would change the jingle to “Harriet and Matt”

    1. Joe Smith says

      Or just change it to “Numpty and Numpty” to cover all eventualities.
