Hits Radio signs Max George to host new Friday evening show

Singer Max George has secured his first presenting role as he joins Hits Radio to host a new Friday evening show ‘Friday Night Hits’.

The Wanted frontman, who competed in last year’s series of Strictly Come Dancing, will be bringing a new sound to the start of the weekend as he kicks things off with his first show this Friday 9th July.

Every Friday from 7-10pm, Max will be live across the UK getting listeners ready for the weekend with the biggest hits and throwbacks. Expect huge tunes from the likes of David Guetta, Calvin Harris, Becky Hill, and Joel Corry plus some of the biggest songs that soundtracked summers gone by.

What’s more, Max will be joined by some huge names from the world of music, who’ll be dropping in to deliver their future hits for him to play on the air.

Hits Radio Programme Director, Paul Gerard said “We’re delighted to have Max join the team at Hits Radio! His energy and vibes are electric! Right now the UK is more hungry for the weekend than ever before and with our social lives getting better by the week and zoom quizzes a thing of the past, we can’t think of a better person to kick start the brand new sound to the Hits Radio Weekend. Crack open a drink and turn us up!”

Max George commented “I’m buzzing to be doing Friday nights, I can’t wait to kickstart people’s weekends and what better way to start my own weekend than playing some of the best tunes created from around the world! I’ve always loved listening to radio and I feel really proud that I’ve got my own show as big as this one across the UK on Hits Radio.”
