says: "Since I was a kid, Radio 1 has been the most important asset of dance music, with their legendary shows and artist features they have built modern music to what it is today! I am pleased to announce that I’ll be joining the family and I’m looking forward to an amazing show with some of the greatest music of today, tomorrow and the future!”
George Fitzgerald says: "I have been overwhelmed with the coverage I have received on the station this year, from recording an Essential Mix in January, playing back-to-back with Pete Tong in Ibiza live on air, to getting support on shows such as Zane Lowe and Annie Mac. I grew up listening to the likes of Gilles Peterson, Mary Anne Hobbs and John Peel on Radio 1, so now to be offered by own monthly show is very humbling."
