Gemma Cairney dumped as fearne stand in


Recommended Posts

Some people were wondering if Gemma would still be filling in for Fearne after she took over as early breakfast host. It looks like the answer is no because on friday april 25 it will be Annie Mac who sits in for Fearne while Gemma is on earlies as normal. It also makes it look as though moving her to earlies was more of a demotion than promotion so she could be out the door completley in a year or 2 !

Better news for Dev though.He wil be sitting in for Greg James on friday april 18 and monday april 21 so looks like he could be the new first choice stand in for Greg ! (That said Huw is doing Zanes show for a couple of weeks starting on monday april 14 so that could be why he's not sitting in for Greg)

A part of me thinks that with proper and consistent production Gemma could be quite good.

I did enjoy parts of her filling in for Fearne - and I really do like Alice, great sense of humour & knowledge of music. I've been listening to Fearne quite a lot the last week or so and, I have to say she's been sounding a bit down. I hope she get's back in to the swing of it soon!

I've always been of the viewpoint that Fearne isnt really passionate about radio that much and she's slinging her coat on as soon as the fader goes up for last record before newsbeat! You never hear her on any other shoes, such as real or no real with Scott. What really confirmed this fact for me was when she came back off maternity leave in Sept and was on Grimmy's breakfast show, and they played Get Lucky - Daft Punk and she said she hadnt heard it before!! I'm sorry, but what rock had she been living under all through summer?! Clearly doesnt listen to Radio 1 out of the office.

Re: Fearnes cover, I hope it becomes either Annie Mac or Alice Levine. They are so quality when they cover for her and such enjoyable listening.

passionate about radio

It seems to me R1 don't believe radio is a passion / skill / art anymore... There's a difference between great radio, and well, radio...

Not to say that some of the current line up are not skilled = there are a few in my opinion.

I agree about Fearne's lack of passion, he show has taken a massive dip, the cover should never be better than the actual show, however all of Fearne's covers are better!! On another note anyone hear scott on Zane last night http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p01wtv8k really top show and thought it should be noted when Zane said "Scott you're sounding really great right now" this is very true, is show is still sounding one of the freshest which for a 41 year old is very impressive!!

I no longer listen to Early Breakfast since Gemma took over so not concerned she isn't cover anymore, always preferred Alice covering.

Not really listened much to Gemma on earlies. Will see what she's like this week when I've got a couple of early starts
