  1. Jordan said he was off filming for a few weeks. I wonder is this the travel show he is doing with Beverley Callard for ITV?
  2. You imagine Jordan will be taking time off to record that travel show with Beverley Callard.
  3. I am surprised the Rock Show is surviving the new schedule. Very little rock music is making the playlist so could be covered on a Future Sounds and Future Artists.
  4. Jordan certainly has become a regular as a guest on TV since I’m A Celeb. I wouldn’t be surprised if he gets his own show soon though I guess this thing with Bev is his own show. It’s nice to see a presenter that worked so hard and is almost universally liked getting this success. This new line-up is incredibly strong, hard to find a single weak link weekdays or weekends.
  5. Jordan will need to get this out of the way before he starts Drive. His profile has really exploded https://www.thesun.co.uk/tv/15259341/coronation-street-beverley-callard-jordan-north-travel-show/
  6. You can see the path being laid for Jordan eventually taking over the chart on Fridays.
  7. Jordan and Vick should be a great combination!
  8. What a great idea!
  9. I also think age brackets are very assumptive in a time when the generation boundaries are blurring. I am outside Radio 1's stated target audience but I find Radio 1's music and humour much more for me than what is offered elsewhere. If you are an older listener there really is nowhere playing new music unless you are into the 6 Music style of new music and not the broader view of new music found on Radio 1. As I said elsewhere, Radio 1 actually has a great line-up of warm presenters at the moment. As much as I am not a huge fan of Grimmy these days, I think him replacing Moyles at Breakfa
  10. I would expect that to change..
  11. Some good points here but there is a problem Radio 1 has faced since the 90s and that’s getting the line right between being a different sounding youth station (thought I’d argue it is as much about music as “youth”) and being popular. Loose too many listeners and it’s a problem, chase listeners at the expense of sounding different and it’s a problem. Right now I think they have it about right. Grimmy needs to go simply as his show sounds the most dated on the station and Scott is clearly preparing to move to Radio 2 when the time is right for him.
  12. It also has to be said that Radio 1 is far better than Radio 2 which generally uses a string of TV stars to cover for the regular presenters. Radio 1 really feels like quite a diverse station that steadily gets more diverse so I don't see a problem as it is on a steady natural evolution. If you look at the history of the station, it's a massively different place today. You can't achieve these things by revolution because the other side of public service broadcasting is producing something people actually want to listen to. If you want to listen to people learning their trade listen to
  13. But what would you do? I think (as you mentioned) the radio 1 new talent scheme is a great way of building more diversity but that takes time. I mean I think things are moving in the right direction surely? when you look at the line-up compared to the U.K. population as a whole.. Clara is the first non-white presenter of the preserve of the evening new music show. Rickie and Melvin (with Charlie) are taking on one of the biggest shows on the station. I would be shocked if Jeremiah Asiamah isn’t a major star at Radio 1 in the next few years. Females have proba
  14. But you can’t compare filling a Breakfast presenter role with say the civil service filling a role. There is a very very limited pool of people who are right for that job. The BBC and most broadcasters have been fantastic in general at not seeing gender, sexuality, race etc. I totally support diversity and tick a few minority boxes myself but I’d hate to get a role for any reason other than my ability.
  15. Agree completely about Alice - should have been destined for bigger things.
  16. I think part of the problem is that for a long time there haven't been female presenters strong enough / of the right style to do Breakfast. But I think that's changing, Vick and Katie, Mollie King, Arielle are all really strong music entertainment presenters so you never know. It should all be on merit anyhow as otherwise that's just patronising to women - just as Greg was definitely the right choice. I think as much as Grimmy's show sounds tired now, he was the right choice to replace Moyles to make a total break with that era. I think aside from Jordan and maybe Jack Saunders
  17. No reason why a Jordan and Arielle pairing wouldn’t be equals. Just as Dev and Alice were and Matt and Mollie
  18. I'd say that's possible. I wonder if you might see a pairing like Jordan and Arielle? They have a great chemistry.
  19. You really wonder if Radio 1 is succession planning and gradually phasing in some of these people. I mean if and when Jordan and Vick n Katie go to daytime and we see Grimmy and Scott and Chris leaving and maybe Adele at some stage there will be quite a few vacancies. I wonder too how long Mollie King will want to do radio. You could see her wanting to go back to music or theatre or whatever at some stage.
  20. It's nice to get Jordan on weekdays !
  21. Notable too that Rickie, Melvin and Charlie aren't covering for Clara this week for the same reason (that they are moving to that slot later in the year).
  22. Arielle seems to be busy with the Brits from her Insta feed.
  23. He is listed as doing it.
  24. I'd be shocked if it wasn't Arielle on the Sunday.
  25. He just said on air that he is taking week commencing 17 May off so he can go home and see his family as soon as the restrictions on overnight stays are lifted.
