Some things simply go better together - Batman and Robin; gin and tonic and Ewen and Cat on a weekday Breakfast Show.
The popular presenters and their full original production team are set to be reunited on the weekday breakfast show on Clyde 2, Forth 2 and across all the Greatest Hits Radio Scotland stations from Monday 11th January 2021.
‘Ewen & Cat At Breakfast’ will air Monday to Friday from 6am to 10am following the success of their Sunday morning show which has broadcast on Clyde 1, Forth 1 and the rest of the Hits Radio Network across Scotland, for five years.
The award-winning pair first worked together on breakfast in commercial radio in 2011 which saw the start of a firm friendship with plenty of fun and laughter along the way.
Their distinctive style of broadcasting and connection with listeners led to them beating every other commercial radio station in the UK to be crowned ‘The Best Breakfast Show of the Year’.
The dynamic duo are looking forward to working together every day with Cat joining Ewen’s hugely popular weekday breakfast show which already has a large following across Scotland.
Ewen said: “Cat is the epicentre of fun and I can’t wait for her to bring that every single morning to the radio studio. I’m over the moon we’re back together because as much as I’ve enjoyed working on my own, it’s like Ant without Dec, C3PO without R2D2. Cat completes me.”
Cat said: “It’s been six years since we last presented a weekday breakfast show together but if 2020 has taught me anything it’s the importance of laughter, fun and light-hearted nonsense in our lives.
“The time is right for us to reunite to create and unleash happy havoc throughout Scotland. Ewen doesn’t realise how funny he is, our show is never dull because of his spontaneity, unpredictability and the fact he’s a wee bit of a rocket in the nicest possible way.
“We always have a hoot on air and our lovely listeners seem to enjoy the madness. This year has been tough on everyone but hopefully Ewen and I can bring a smile to people’s faces in 2021.”
Victoria Easton-Riley, Content Director, Greatest Hits Radio Scotland, said: “Ewen and Cat have such amazing chemistry on-air and we hear it every week on their Clyde 1 and Forth 1 Sunday morning show. They have so much fun and we were very keen to get them working together on a more regular basis. So, when Cat agreed to join Ewen on Clyde 2 & Forth 2 breakfast I was absolutely delighted. It also means she can keep Ewen in check too – better than anyone else! I can’t wait.
“I know they will brighten up the morning for the listeners bringing a lot of fun as well as great music, celebrity guests, brilliant competitions and local news, sport and travel. The Greatest Hits listeners are in for a treat!”
