Smooth Radio has announced a new schedule for 2020 which includes TV presenter Jenni Falconer joining to host the station’s London breakfast show.
Jenni, who is also known for her role as travel reporter on ITV’s This Morning, will present London’s Smooth Breakfast, weekdays 6am to 10am from next Monday 6 January. The show will also be available nationwide on Smooth Extra on DAB.
In addition, Jenni will host a new Saturday show from 10am to 1pm across the UK on the Smooth network.
Jenni becomes part of the star presenter line-up on Smooth – alongside Kate Garraway, Myleene Klass, Margherita Taylor, Tina Hobley and Angie Greaves – having previously hosted the early breakfast show on Smooth’s sister station, Heart.
Jenni takes over from Gary King, who will present Smooth’s new, national early breakfast show from Monday to Friday, as well as continuing to host Saturday afternoons (1pm to 4pm).
Angie Greaves, who joined Smooth last September to host the new nationwide Smooth Drive Home, will present a new three-hour Sunday show (10am – 1pm).
Jenni Falconer said: “I am beyond thrilled to be joining the Smooth family and truly honoured to help wake up London every weekday morning.
“I’m no stranger to the early starts, so I can’t wait to keep listeners company as they get ready for their day, set off to work or make their morning cuppa! I’m also excited to host a brand-new nationwide show on Saturday morning – and to be working for a station which plays such a brilliant mix of relaxing music is the icing on the cake for me.”
I am so thrilled to share the news that I am joining the Smooth family. 💜 As of Monday, I will be the new host of Smooth Breakfast in London, which will also be broadcast across the UK on Smooth Extra. 🙌🏻 In… https://t.co/JK6hImEs2o
