Schedule changes at Magic Radio will see Tom Price and Kat Shoob taking on the weekday drivetime show.
The 4 till 7 Show with Tom and Kat launches on Monday 9th October, replacing Simon Phillips. Simon will continue to host his daily morning show on Magic Soul.
The current host of Saturday Breakfast, Tom Price has been at Magic Radio since 2016. He’s also known for his stand-up comedy and TV career. Kat previously worked on stations including Capital and Heart and joined Magic Radio to host weekend evenings in 2020, later moving to weekend afternoons.
Tom and Kat say: “We are super excited to help people over the working day’s finishing line. We’ll be in the winner’s enclosure welcoming everyone in and handing out cups of tea, large cakes, dinner and more of the songs you love.”
Also new to the weekday line-up are Neev Spencer between 1 and 4pm and singer and actor Lemar joining the main station from Friday 13th October for a seven-week run hosting Friday evenings from 7pm in addition to his weekend breakfast shows on Magic Soul.
Weekend changes will see TV Presenter Angellica Bell joining the station for Saturday Breakfast and Nicole Appleton joins to host a new weekend show from 4 to 7pm. Her first show will be on Saturday 14th October.
Nicole Appleton says: “I am thrilled to be spending even more time with my Magic family on a Saturday and Sunday as it gives me not one but two chances every weekend to play even more of the songs you – and I – love. As an avid Magic listener for many years, I couldn’t be more excited about this new adventure!”
Angellica Bell says: “I’ve listened to Magic for as long as I can remember, and it’s always been my go-to station whether it be playing in the house or even listening in the back of a cab on the way home after a night out! I am beyond excited to be joining the team and relaunch the weekends with more feel-good music and tracks that ignite great memories. I can’t wait!”
Elsewhere, Dan Morrissey will present 7 to 10pm Monday to Thursday. Alex Baker will host Magic Monday to Friday 10 to 1am.

Rachel Mallender, Content Director for Magic Radio said: “This is an exciting new chapter for Magic. We love being the soundtrack to our listeners’ day, whether they’re waking up with Ronan & Harriet or now getting home with Tom and Kat. With Neev Nicole, Angellica and Lemar joining the line-up, there’s even more reasons to listen across the week.”
