Kirsty Gallacher is joining Smooth Radio to present a brand-new Saturday afternoon show as part of a new-look weekend schedule for the station, starting this Saturday 17 July.
One of the UK’s most popular presenters, Kirsty, who recently joined the newly launched TV station GB News, will begin her own Saturday show (1pm to 4pm) across the UK on Smooth.
Kirsty becomes part of Smooth’s all-star line-up, which includes Kate Garraway, Myleene Klass, Margherita Taylor, Tina Hobley and Angie Greaves.
Tina Hobley will present a new Sunday afternoon show (1pm to 4pm), while Paul Phear will host The Smooth Sanctuary at Seven (7pm to 10pm), as well as continuing to host his weekday afternoon programme (1pm to 4pm).
Along with Kirsty, Simon Clarke joins the station to present two new weekend overnight shows (Saturday and Sunday, 1am to 6am).
Kirsty Gallacher said: “I’m so excited to be joining my favourite radio station, Smooth Radio. I’ve been a listener and a fan for a very long time and I can’t wait to kick start the weekend with a Saturday afternoon show that is good for the soul!”
Sally Ardis, Smooth Radio’s managing editor, said: “Kirsty Gallacher is a hugely talented and popular broadcaster, who shares our passion for the music we play at Smooth.
“Coupled with her fun personality, she is the perfect addition to our line-up. We can’t wait for Kirsty to join our weekend schedule and we know that our listeners will enjoy relaxing with her on a Saturday afternoon. We look forward to welcoming her and Simon Clarke to the Smooth family.”
