A New Chapter for Magic Radio including new Drivetime, new Weekend Shows and new presenters

– New schedule launches October 9th with new shows from 1pm to 1am

Magic Radio has today announced a new chapter for the much-loved radio station with new shows from 1pm to 1am Monday to Friday and a new look weekend team including Nicole Appleton, Emma B and Angellica Bell.

Tom Price and Kat Shoob have landed the coveted drivetime slot. The pair will team up for ‘The 4 till 7 Show with Tom and Kat’ launching Monday 9th October.

The current host of Saturday Breakfast, Tom Price has been entertaining Magic Radio listeners since 2016. Tom is famous for his stand-up comedy and TV career, appearing in shows such as Doctor Who spin-off series Torchwood. Kat is an accomplished broadcaster having worked on stations including Capital and Heart and joined Magic Radio to host weekend evenings in 2020, later moving to weekend afternoons.

“We are super excited to help people over the working day’s finishing line. We’ll be in the winner’s enclosure welcoming everyone in and handing out cups of tea, large cakes, dinner and more of the songs you love” said Tom and Kat.

Also new to the weekday line-up are Neev Spencer between 1 and 4pm and Lemar who will kick start Friday nights.  Regular contributor on ITV’s Good Morning Britain, Neev is an award-winning presenter who before joining Magic, was a listener favourite at KISS. Platinum selling star and actor Lemar will be joining the main station from Friday 13th October for a seven-week run hosting Friday evenings from 7pm alongside his weekend breakfast shows on Magic Radio’s sister station Magic Soul.

Along with changes to the weekday, Saturdays and Sundays have a new look with two famous faces at the start and end of the day from 14th October.

TV Presenter Angellica Bell will be joining the station for Saturday Breakfast and at the end of the day global pop star Nicole Appleton becomes a permanent fixture of the Magic Radio line-up as she joins the station to host a new weekend show from 4 to 7pm. Her first show will be on Saturday October 14th.

Speaking about the new look schedule, Rachel Mallender, Content Director for Magic Radio said;
“This is an exciting new chapter for Magic. We love being the soundtrack to our listeners’ day,
whether they’re waking up with Ronan & Harriet or now getting home with Tom and Kat. With Neev Nicole, Angellica and Lemar joining the line-up, there’s even more reasons to listen across the week.”

New Magic Radio presenter, Nicole Appleton added “I am thrilled to be spending even more time with my Magic family on a Saturday and Sunday as it gives me not one but two chances every weekend to play even more of the songs you – and I – love. As an avid Magic listener for many years, I couldn’t be more excited about this new adventure!”

Angellica Bell said “I’ve listened to Magic for as long as I can remember, and it’s always been my go-to station whether it be playing in the house or even listening in the back of a cab on the way home after a night out! I am beyond excited to be joining the team and relaunch the weekends with more feel-good music and tracks that ignite great memories. I can’t wait!”

Elsewhere on Magic Dan Morrissey will present 7 to 10pm Monday to Thursday. Alex Baker will host Magic Monday to Friday 10 to 1am. At weekends, Jen Thomas will host from 10pm – 1am on Saturday and Sundays, with Emma B taking over from 1-4pm.
