  1. I think this is a great move all round, this way Radio 1 should get a breakfast show with a bit more clout and a host hungry to be in the hotseat, while Grimmy will get a prominent slot that plays to his strengths better. I reckon Grimmy's underrated on here really, I think his time on nights, daytime cover and first couple of years on breakfast were brilliant and justified his promotion over Greg in 2012, to be honest. I do think his show has been on autopilot for a few years now though, it just feels like the team have no real ideas for it and want any excuse to stick on a mix for an ho
  2. So it looks like Dev's also in for Huw again tonight, this time because Phil's in for Annie instead of Huw who should be in for Annie (still following?). This is great news for me, I think Dev handled the specialist slot brilliantly yesterday, in that one show he did a better job of convincing me that he actually listens to new music than Fearne has ever managed over the last five years. The situation reminded me a bit of Grimmy when he was on nightimes, which was basically a daytime show with a free playlist broadcast in the evenings.
  3. Post-Moyles, what I personally think Ben Cooper should've done was given Scott and Chris the breakfast show, with Grimmy replacing them in the afternoons, before moving Nick up to breakfast when Scott's contract expires. This way, Scott could have gone out on a high with an excellent breakfast show, and Nick likely would not have faced the extreme backlash he experienced to begin with, as he will have had a chance to establish himself properly with a daytime audience. This summary is spot-on. As it is now, I don't think Scott needs to move to breakfast right now since Nick's show is improvin
  4. Hello, another occasional stealth browser and first time poster. Apologies in advance for the length. DAYTIME (pretty strong, 7.5/10) Dev - I know he's not the strongest broadcaster in the universe, but I have a real soft spot for Dev. He's got a wry and warm, but also honest style. I think this style suits his slot perfectly (that's a compliment BTW) and he's got a likeable (if slightly music heavy) show. Due to his perseverance alone, I think he should be promoted, but sadly I can't see anywhere he'd fit in the schedule. It's a shame as no-one wants to be on earlies forever. Nick Grimshaw
  5. 1. Sara Cox-Hilariously funny and random and deserves a better slot than the one she has. 2. Dev-Really improved since starting on earlies and has made the show his own. Have heard many moments which have been genuinely funny. 3. Reggie Yates-Chart and Request shows work really well and the Sony nomination proves this. Wish his shows weren't so tightly formatted so he could show what he's capable of. 4. Scott Mills-Consistently entertaining. 5. Chris Moyles-Goes through his cycles if brilliance and rubbishness. When he's good, he's GOOD, but he can also be very dull and rely on laughter f
  6. I was beginning to think that I was the only person who thought this about Dev's show. Admittedly, he wasn't much cop when he started, but he's improved massively and I just don't understand why people generally don't like him. His style of broadcasting really suits the early slot and he doesn't seem to try too hard to be funny. I just hope the Radio 1 bosses don't pull a Greg James with him and promote him too soon, because if they gave him a few more years on the earlies, he could be one of the best daytime presenters on the station. Greg however, could've been but he peaked too quickly and
