Official Nick Grimshaw takes over Breakfast on September 24th


Recommended Posts


  • 1 month later...
Nick Grimshaw brings more music and his irreverent sense of humour to weekday mornings as the brand new host of BBC Radio 1's Breakfast Show.

For three and a half hours every day, expect a compelling blend of Nick's infectious personality along with an exciting mix of music, the best in big name guests from the worlds of music and entertainment, as well as a range of interactive features. Nick will continue to champion new music with his Big Thing (record of the week).

Among the big named guests set to join Nick in the show's first week are singer Cheryl Cole and Hollywood actress Emma Watson.

Audience interaction and participation through social media will also form a big part, with Radio 1 listeners playing an active role in everything the show does. More content than ever before will also be available online for listeners to share.

Presenter/ Nick Grimshaw, Producer/Matt Fincham

Grimmy's show sounds good although I imagine he will have to refine his record of the week selections!

I don't consider Cheryl a big guest either although I've always had a soft spot for Emma Watson and Grimmy is a very good interviewer.

The audience interaction and participation has the potential to be a bit naff though. I suppose it depends how he does it.

I hope he does a Moyles style chat at the start of the show. Presumably it won't be half an hour but I don't think it sounds right when a breakfast show begins with two records like all the other shows on the station.

His team also sounds quite good, from reading various news pieces it sounds like they will be talking but not to the level on Moyles show. I imagine it will be like his show now or Coxy's which include the team much more than most but it isn't a zoo format which Cooper is so opposed to. He has Fincham, Ian (from Greg's show and previously Coxy's show when he was quite funny) and Fiona (who I don't know).

Wow, and I get accused of negativity... note that those are TWO names AMONG many guests set... not that guests have ever truly made a show, not even in Moyles' time.

I can already see from your posts that

a: You're not willing to give Nick a proper chance

and/or

b: You're going to instantly compare him to Moyles at his prime right off the bat rather than give ANY time to bed in and find his feet.

These are facts.

To be fair Moyles has had plenty of crap guests in the past. So it doesn't look as if things'll change in that respect once he leaves.

As for me I'll be staying well away from the breakfast show from the 24th onwards. It just feels like a massive insult to Moyles' legacy that they're allowing someone so bland and formulaic to take over a slot that he's injected so much originality and individuality into over the past 8 years. I give Grimshaw a year at the very most.

So save the last dance

For me my love 'cause I

I see you as an angel freshly fallen from the sky...

Even Fincham thinks he'll only last 6 months. But give him time. He may Blossom. May.

No fucker seems willing to give him time... Yeah there's definitely NO WAY Grimmy can adapt his style or anything, evolve and change like many other DJs have (even Moyles changed quite a lot when he moved from Afternoons to Breakfast, and may change again with whatever time slot he might now go to), but this change does NOT happen overnight, or quickly... Coxy was given 3 years of plummeting ratings before being fired, Grimmy is being dismissed by audiences before he's even done a show.

Sick of this kind of attitude where nobody will give the guy a chance, but then it's to be expected from some of you... :rolleyes:

I find it strange that a presenter taking over the breakfast show to shift the focus to new music, has Cheryl as a guest. Also, Mills has confirmed he will be the cover for Grimmy (another odd choice)

and I think the advert is pretty much what everyone hoped the breakfast show wouldn't be, but feared it would be.

I still think Radio 1 will cycle through breakfast show djs quickly for 5 years... hence the "breakfast show with..." title, in order to lose the association with Moyles.

Grimmy may change his style, but any change will only to sound more like Moyles, which will probably be in the wrong direction for the audience, who will view him as a cheaper (literally) alternative.

Its essientially a concert so unsurprising the police have been called.

Grimmy is very popular with an audience who, to be frank, dont post on thos board. Search #teamgrimmy on twitter to see tge reaction of R1s target audience. Its very very popular.

BTW Sara Cox gained listeners between 2000 and 2003 and had more listeners then Zoe Ball, MnL. She lost about 200,000 over 9 months. She did outstay her welcome but was good in her day. It must be frustrating for her to be known a failure because of the last year. Something Moyles wont have since he left on a high.

I think he has an inflated fan base because of his friendship with one direction. I doubt any of them would listen to one of his 10-12 shows.

I remember talking to some girls in my year about him once. One was like "OMG I love Nick Grimshaw so much, he's such a babe" but when I asked her if she listen to his show she didnt even know he was on radio!

And I won't sit down,

And I won't shut up,

But most of all I will not grow up <3

Nick won't focus on new music on the breakfast show like he does in his current slot. After 7pm on Radio 1 is 'specialist' music. 4am-7pm is playlist. The music Nick will play on breakfast will be like what he plays when he was covered for Scott and Greg.
