Presenter moves as Virgin Radio introduces summer schedule changes – RadioToday

Virgin Radio UK has a few programming changes across the network for the summer season, including the return of Virgin Radio Pride UK in June.

As Sam Pinkham takes a break, Steve Denyer moves to early breakfast. Bam moves to evenings from 7-10pm on Monday to Thursday, and Olivia Jones joins the team from Rock FM to present the late show from 10pm.

Meanwhile, Jayne Middlemiss moves to weekend breakfast from 6-9.30am.

Other changes include Vicki Blight taking over Virgin Radio Anthems UK in the mid-morning slot and Michael Underwood switching to Virgin Radio Chilled UK.

The network is also moving its Sunday Special documentary slot forward to 7pm, as the Virgin Radio team takes a weekly deep dive on the lives and achievements of some of the greatest names in music.

Still no word on a permanent replacement for Kate Lawler on Drive, as Gaby Roslin continues to cover.

Virgin Radio UK Content Director, Mike Cass said: “You can smell it in the air, summer is just around the corner, and we’re changing things up, not least with the return of the award-winning Virgin Radio Pride UK in June .

“I’m delighted to welcome new voices, and familiar voices in new slots, as we prepare to provide the soundtrack to the UK’s summer!”
