Olivia Jones lands Hits Radio Pride weekday afternoon slot

Hits Radio Pride has today announced that Olivia Jones will be extending her presenting duties on the station and hosting afternoons from Monday 20th September.

Currently hosting Sunday afternoons on the Bauer Media dedicated LGBTQ+ radio station, Olivia also co-presents Rock FM Breakfast. She takes over from Paris Munro, who has been hosting weekday afternoons on Hits Radio Pride for the past six months.

The announcement comes shortly after Hits Radio Pride celebrated its first birthday last month. Launched in August 2020 as the first LGBTQ+ radio station in the UK by a major broadcaster, it is currently on the lookout for its next new presenter through its competition Hits Radio Pride Future Star in partnership with BT.

Paul Gerrard, Programme Director, Hits Radio, said: “We’re so excited to have Olivia hosting afternoons on Hits Radio Pride. She’s smart, sharp, funny, loves her music and is going to be a brilliant addition to the weekday team. The whole team at Hits Radio Pride wishes Paris all the best for the future and thanks her for her contribution to our first year on air.”

On her new timeslot, Olivia added: “Hosting Hits Radio Pride on the weekend for the past few months has been a joy and I can’t wait to get more involved with the station with my own weekday afternoon show. Put together our honest conversations, world-class playlist, and our passionate listeners, I can't wait to do it five days a week, starting Monday!”
