Jameela Jamil, oh dear?

I have to say, on TV I liked her. At the moment she doesn't ever sound like she knows whats going on. The competition over the last month or so was a really good concept... but never has a presenter talked to any caller less, or sounded less pleased, it was all 'I'm so relieved this has worked - here's a song'. There was even one caller where I didn't catch the name or who they wanted to see, it was over in a flash!

I think if anything it highlights that to work on radio, you have to be good at RADIO. If you're good at TV, that's great - it also works the other way...

At times it feels like Radio 1 are completely underestimating the power of a good radio broadcaster and the brilliant positive influence they can have, in order to look trendy. It's radio, I want to like the presenter & music, get to know them a bit, have a laugh... Not look like them and admire their make-up choices...

Sort of on / off topic rant over!

I have listened to the chart for a while, bus since Jameela has arrived it seems to be like she sounds so un natural on-air and for some reason embarasing. It's just not sounding right, unlike Grimmy who I have grown to like, #bringbackreg

I heard some of the chart on Sunday on the drive home and she sounded bored when doing the run down for some of it. No enthusiasm at all

A part of me thinks that this will be Scott's next role on the station, he always does it brillaintly and could represent the chart really well on other shows.

I can't think of anybody else on the station who could make a go of it based on the essential interest in music and visualisation element. It feels like it needs a spark / new lease of life fairly soon. Unless they use another daytime DJ like Greg, but I can't see them doing that as DJs haven't done regular 6 shifts a week for ages.

In my opinion the whole of the weekends are starting to feel disjointed and confused. Some of the newer shows especially seem to be fitting a really set format.

What should be the weekend schedule then?

Just my suggestion

7.00 New Signing from Student Radio e.g. Pete Allison

10.00 Sat: Matt Edmondson Sun: Coxy (Although I can live with just Matt)

1.00 New Signing from Commercial Radio e.g. Eoghan McDermott

4.00 (Most Difficult bit) Sat: Huw doing some sort of new music show maybe & Scott or Greg (perhaps even a rota) on Chart on Sunday

(Sunday Evening stays the same)

Well it was about this time last year that R1 announced the new weekend schedule so if it hasn't worked out maybe they'll announce more changes for the new year any day now.I doubt they'll give Coxy her old slot back though somehow. Now she has her sat night show on R2 she probably wouldn't do a weekend show on radio 1 as well anyway because I think she wants to spend more time with her kids

Shows how crap she is when they have to get Scott in to do the Christmas chart show as she can't be trusted to do the most important one by herself... Scott excels as a radio presenter every day!

Someone tweeted her to ask if she thought she would ever get promoted .She replied 'you know that's never going to happen' and added she was amazed that she's still working on the station. I couldn't possibly comment... :|
