Thought I’d start this up and see what everyone thinks: the point of this thread is essentially for you to leave your prediction of where you think Radio 1 will be in terms of schedule and general direction three years from right now.
For my money, I think we’ll have a new breakfast show by then (probably Vick and Jordan, or possibly Jordan and Katie), and Scott may well have moved to weekends or even Radio 2 (though I hope not). So I think you could see the likes of Katie Thistleton and Dean McCullough on weekday daytimes and I imagine some fresh faces on weekends.
Sounds like a lot of change I know but Greg leaving breakfast would precipitate a pretty big shift (and one we can’t predict) considering it would most likely bring about one or both drive presenters leaving the slot. I think it’s a safe bet to stay Jordan North will anchor the next breakfast show, it’s a question of who he’s paired with (most likely option obviously Vick, but maybe she stays and does drive solo?). Greg I’m sure will leave breakfast in the next few years because by then he’d have done 6 or even 7 years and it would be time for a change.
I can’t see RMC sticking around much longer than 2025 either - they’ve been doing primetime youth radio for a decade or more already and I think the live lounge is likely their ceiling at Radio 1.
