    There’s no way another breakfast host will last 6-8 years after Moyles.  It needs to refresh much quicker than that, Moyles staying so long left radio 1 in a tricky situation, not to mention, Greg’s breakfast era is really most likely a transitional show before the new big radio 1 DJs break through.

    I'll be the lone Grimmy fan here and say I think he gets a hard time here. He has an incredible skill of making his shows sound natural but still entertaining and that can be very difficult to pull off for many presenters. I'm a bit lukewarm on Jordan North taking over drive. He's a good presenter but having Greg on breakfast and Jordan on drive all feels too... safe, and we know radio 1 don't like to play safe. Grimmy and Greg have opposite personalities to appeal to different people in Radio 1's demographic during their flagship weekday shows (hence why you usually hear people prefer one to the other), and Greg and Jordan seem to appeal to the same type of people.
    I personally enjoyed Alice Levine covering on Thursday, but I don't think we'll ever see a scenario where Dev & Alice take over 4-7.

    Maybe Lorna Clark is influencing stuff already? or Aled is shaking things up?

    I can see Charlie as a future replacement for Jam on Dance Anthems actually the "club charlie" feature is great on Thursday at 2230 
    She will be more on target and probably do some live mixing too

    Definitely a demotion specially as Scott is chart host too 
    Dev deserves a weekday slot IMO

    I don’t want them to do that tbh, Scott and Chris’ current slot is a lot better than Matt and Mollie’s, think if they got moved it would seem like a demotion

    Scott and Chris are probaly the best thing on radio 1, they’re always funny. They are one of the best radio shows in the whole UK. Even if they leave radio 1- id follow them to wherever they go.
    ive been enjoying it a lot this year with the return of innuendo bingo! And ‘superfan Steve’ that’s wicked- shows how few celebs listen to R1? I seem to remember people like Olly Murs and Graham Norton used to listen back in the day! 
    I think Scott’s 2nd LOLathon just shows how funny him and Chris are- at least there a duo that get on and doesn’t feel constructed *cough cough Matt and mollie*. 
    Despite Scott being in his 40s he sounds more young and fresh then ever!

    Actually I think your theory could be one that’s correct - after all Scott is already doing drive on a Friday so why not add the other four 
    His Dance anthems has been renamed too to Party Anthems 
    What I think will happen is there will be major changes when the new controller for Radio 1&2 is announced (has it been?) if this is Ben Cooper as predicted maybe he’ll make major changes 
     
    But yes I 100% agree Scott’s show sounds fresher than ever and it’s also been really good to hear him solo as well

    I agree, I also thought they may have been winding down and I know it's inevitable but I certainly hope that isn't the case. It's always been a dream of mine to work on the Scott Mills show one day, but I need to get to the UK before he leaves!

    Annie Mac 7-9pm weekdays for new music.  People always make digs on here about Capital and the like.  Maybe some don't like the music (a lot of the target demo do), maybe you don't like the high rotation (it works for their aim), maybe you don't like the quick links or style (up to you), but none of that means it isn't a very high quality product, incredibly slick, and employs very very talented people, talented in a fast paced, less obvious way than the likes of Radio 1 DJs.  It's not massively my cup of tea, but it's very good at what it does.

    From the way this is going, it feels like Greg is just a temporary host until they can find someone dynamic and different.  He’s bland on Breakfast.  I almost wish Grimmy had stayed on.

    In fairness her format is deliberately music based, but it sounds awful because she’s an awful radio presenter.  If Scott did that format it’d sound slick and funny.  Funny how not even on social media has Maya acnowlaged the Lolathon, I’m still conceived she doesn’t know it’s happening haha.

    Maybe a 48 hour lolathon, that would be incredible.  I wonder if either Scott or Greg could go after the longest show moyles record this year, I’d really like to hear that.
