Maya Jama leaving Radio 1? I never thought I'd see the day!
In all fairness, this has all come about sooner than I thought - especially since she was doing well on BBC Sounds. I wasn't expecting to see this at least for another year or two - six months at the earliest. Having said that, even though she was popular with quite a few listeners, I wasn't a fan of her presenting style. There were certain things that used to grate on my nerves as both a listener and radio geek over the two years - least of all the attempt to be funny or throw in a goofy remark every third sentence, in every link.
But that was then, and looking ahead, I think Jordan North should get the remaining slots since he got so badly sidelined in 2018. Grimmy's not a bad shout, and Vick Hope was rumored to join R1 at some point - maybe now's the time.
But whatever happens, I'm looking forward to finally having Radio 1 back on all weekend, every weekend.
