Scott Mills is moving to Radio 5 Live for a new show alongside co-presenter Chris Stark.
The new Saturday morning programme will begin on 9th November, and will be in addition to his weekday Radio 1 show, the chart show, and stints on Radio 2.
Scott Mills, who has been hosting on Radio 1 since 2001, said: “I’m so delighted to be joining BBC Radio 5 live! I love my Radio 1 show and covering for Claudia on Radio 2 which I’ll still be doing. But I’m now ready to bring a whole different show to 5 live. Expect lots of laughs and of course Chris Stark. Just what you want on a Saturday morning!”
Chris Stark, who has presented alongside Mills for seven years, said: “Saturday mornings for me were always the excitement of a day of sport ahead and the routines that came with it. Wenzels steak slice, listening to Fighting Talk, meeting up with mates at the Pinner war memorial before kicking on to Vicarage Road. To take on Saturday mornings at 5 live is a huge honour. I’m excited for us to make a show that reflects the lives and stories of everyone listening on a Saturday morning. The best time of the week. We cannot wait to get started.”
Heidi Dawson, Controller at BBC Radio 5 live says: “Scott Mills is one of the best broadcasters in the business and I’m excited about the new show he and Chris Stark will be bringing to Saturday mornings.
