BBC Radio 1 has announced the start date for Rickie, Melvin and Charlie on the station as Monday 1st April.
Rickie Williams, Melvin Odoom and Charlie Hedges had been presenting the Kiss FM breakfast show for about 10 years when they announced towards the end of last year that they were to join Radio 1.
The BBC said their new show will be the Monday to Thursday 9-11pm slot and would feature “those candid conversations between friends – after the watershed – while playing new music chosen by Rickie, Melvin and Charlie”.
At the time Ben Cooper, Controller, Radio 1 & 1Xtra said: “Radio 1 needs to keep disrupting, keep changing, keep surprising our audiences and our industry. Can’t wait to tune in to hear Rickie, Melvin and Charlie on Radio 1 with an exciting mix of late night humour and great new music.”
