Global is launching a brand new national station - Radio X. Chris Moyles, Vernon Kay, Johnny Vaughan and Ricky Wilson will join the new station which is available across the UK on digital radio platform D1.
On Monday September 21st Chris Moyles will be back on the air with The Chris Moyles Show from 06.30-10.00 a.m. giving the nation its first taste of Radio X.
Chris Moyles will be joined by Vernon Kay for mid-mornings, Johnny Vaughan at drive and Ricky Wilson at weekends completing the all star line-up. Global have said, "Together with Chris Moyles, they will inject a huge dose of personality into the new station".
The station replaces XFM and joins the Global portfolio of radio brands giving the group, and the commercial radio sector, the first male-focused, fully national music and entertainment brand for 25-44 year olds. (Although all the girls here at MediaQuest are loving the proposed station sound of Florence & The Machine, Mumford & Sons, Blur, Arctic Monkeys, The Maccabees, Radiohead, Nirvana, The Smiths, Royal Blood, Kasabian, Catfish & The Bottlemen and Kings of Leon!)
Stephen Miron, group CEO at Global, says: "I am proud that Global is launching Radio X today and that we are able to bring a completely new national music and entertainment property for 25-44 year old men to the market. Radio X will be a one of its kind radio station and the first time the commercial sector has catered for this hard to reach group. We are excited about working with our clients and agency partners to connect them with this audience through Radio X. Our investment in a national platform, an unbeatable talent line-up and a heavyweight advertising campaign speaks to our ambition for the brand".
So tune in on Monday 21st September 2015 and tell us what you think! Radio X will be available all across the UK on the digital radio platform D1 as well as on 104.9FM in London and 97.7FM in Manchester.
