is Huw Stephens used too much for daytime cover?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone think that Huw Stephens is used a bit too much as a stand in for DJs during the week?.According to Digiguide he's on drivetime again from monday june 10 to fri june 14 while Gregs on holiday.I would like to hear more of Matt Edmondson or Phil Taggart or even Dan and Phil occassionally.Huws ok but it just seems to me that he's used a bit too much and it's stopping other DJs having a go .Anyone agree?

I completely agree. I don't mind Huw, but I do think that other DJ's need to be given a chance. I do wonder whether Huw will move to weekday daytime at some point in the future, hence why he is always on cover duty? I'd like to see Matt Edmondson, Dev, Phil, Alice and maybe even someone new entirely. Pete Allison was really good when he covered for Dev before Easter. When Dev eventually gets promoted from the early breakfast slot, hopefully someone like Pete will replace him in it

The big reason why Dev does early breakfast and occasional weekend cover is due to his university commitments

But Dev has now finshed Uni. So how about this a idea, Greg takes over from Nick on the Breakfast show, Dev take over Drivetime and Peter Allison on early.

Saw that this morning that he had finished his degree. Either way there not going to take Grimmy off breakfast or Greg off drive anytime soon

I was going a long the line that if Nick keep slipping he may have to go, I hope Nick all the best but as the Rajar numbers show it is not Radio 1 doing bad it is reaching 40% of 15 to 24 year olds in one way or other. So my quote was based on if Nick dose not work out, maybe if his listeners numbers are still low in 9 months time Radio may have to do something.

Do you think that Dev will stay with Radio One or start a new career with his uni degree? If he's going to be stuck on earlys much longer I think he might just pack it in.I'm starting to doubt if he'll ever be offered anything better though because he hasn't even covered for any other DJs much lately.He used to sit in for Greg or Scott a lot but not for ages.

I thing he said on air that that his degree was in media. Dev also dose work within out areas of the BBC such as BBC learning so I guess the only one who knows what he want to do is Dev. Not every DJ will be a Chris Moyles and be a celebrity most DJ's do other work on the side. I would for one like to see more of Dev on Radio 1.

To be honest, I don't listen to Radio 1 as much anymore - but it's always nice to hear Huw whenever I turn (he is always on). Seeing as I'm a MASSIVE fangirl, I'd love to hear more of Dan and Phil, or Matt - or even more Scott. In fact, let's just get rid of every other DJ. ESPECIALLY JEMEELA JAMIL EHJBGFHBJHJAGJFNCFVKCLD.

P.S. I haven't heard Dev for years? Is he still on R1? I miss him :(


OMASM. Radio presenters are like fruit. Matt is my kumquat and Scott is blatantly my orange.

Dev's on from 4am-6.30am before Grimmy, I like listening to him in the morning but only from about 5, Ima not getting up at 4 especially!

Radio 1 tend to overdo it with 1 presenter on cover all the time, remember when it was always Greg?

I'd love to see Dan & Phil, Matt, Dev and Phil T. used more. Huw is just a touch too bland - I like him, but I tend to tune him out completely after a while when I have his show on in the background.

I wouldn't be surprised to see new faces cover daytime/weekend during Glastonbury
