  1. 1. What Will He Do?



Recommended Posts


Baha I laughed at the idea of Scott doing commercial radio, there's no way he'd go back to that tripe, he's said so himself.

I think so long as he can keep coming up with new ideas and making a good show every day, he'll want to renew it (assuming Radio 1 don't try and push him out). He might go to Radio 2, but I'm not sure I could see him doing that either.. I suspect that the day he leaves Radio 1 is the day he leaves radio.

I think the contract ends early next year. He might well have been hinting he's leaving with the whole last play of World Cup/ Christmas song thing but I'll think he'll stay but he's over 40 and if what they wanted with moyles is true he might go.

I actually think he'll agree to swap with Matt and move to weekends so he can focus on TV projects and do the Strictly tour !

I think that's unlikely for several reasons.

I don't think Matt would want to go five days a week, because at the moment he does more TV than Scott does, and TV is his main thing. He wouldn't give up TV work to do more radio shows I don't think.

Plus, I highly doubt Scott would go back to weekends. It's an obvious demotion, and I think he should go out at the top of his game (whilst still on daytime) and not slowly be phased out from Radio 1 by going to weekends. Plus Scott barely does any TV apart from the Lottery and Eurovision anyway, and that doesn't take five days a week.

Just a thought here, Scott could do his regular show 1-4 Mon-Fri and then do Saturday 10-1, like moyles did between 98 and 01. Matt can then just do Sunday.

Well, if they really want to get rid of him because of his age, probably not a good idea to give him even more airtime, isn't it?

That's silly. Considering the amount of preparation it takes for a show, would you really expect Scott to do six a week? Plus, when would he have time to do stuff to actually talk about on air? Then, why would R1 want an older outgoing DJ to more shows per week, displacing a younger DJ on his way up to just one show a week? That would never happen.

Plus Moyles only did the Saturday show because his weekday show was just 4-5.45.As soon as he got an extra hour he gave up the Saturday show

I'd like to see this happen

0400: New DJ

0630: Greg James

1000: Gemma Cairney ( I do believe she's becoming the new fearne)

1300: Matt Edmonson

1600: Nick Grimshaw

( New idea here after newsbeat, the slots go like this)

1800: Scott Mills

2000: Zane Lowe

2130: Documentary Slot

2230: Phil Taggart

0000: Simulcast With 1Xtra

I don't like the idea of Zane having a shorter show & starting later in the day, I think he's great at what he does and he's one of the best DJs on the station (plus Ben Cooper promised they wouldn't have less specialist hours than they currently do).

I think Alice Levine could do Fearne's slot, although Gemma would be alright (I don't like her personally but the management seem to want to give her a chance).

Although I loved Scott on drive, I can't see him doing it again personally for a number of reasons, plus it doesn't make sense to create new teams for two hour shows when the current format works perfectly well.

If they were to give Matt a week day show (which I'd love) I think this would be what Radio 1 would do:

04:00 - Gemma Cairney (or maybe someone new)

06:30 - Greg James

10:00 - Alice Levine (she seems to be covering daytime shows in the week and since she's now got a daytime show at the weekend it's possible)

13:00 - Nick Grimshaw (although I'd like to keep Scott)

16:00 - Matt Edmonson (they might put Matt on 1-4 instead but I'd prefer it this way round since Matt has more potential with more production in my opinion)

The rest of the day would continue as usual...

However if I was PC this is what I would do:

04:00 - Nick Grimshaw (would cover drive when Matt's away)

06:30 - Greg James

10:00 - Alice Levine

13:00 - Scott Mills (would cover breakfast when Greg's away, as is already in his contract)

16:00 - Matt Edmonson

Then Zane at 7 etc etc

I'd also like Aled to produce Scott again since he did good things for both Mills & Moyles on their shows, although I'm not sure if he'd take the gig.

If Scott swapped with Matt it would actually be a sort of promotion because the weekend 10am slot is the most high profile weekend slot where as his current slot is lower than breakfast or drive,and he can always say he chose to move because of all the tv stuff he's doing!
