Which Radio 1 DJs should have been promoted?

Recommended Posts

Radio 1 has seen a number of faces come and go, what presenters do you think should have had a promotion?

I'm thinking about the likes of Wes, JK and Joel, Vicki Bright, etc who all had shows and disappeared off the station...

Alice should’ve made it onto a weekday daytime slot really

Week day presenters are probably obliged to  have Radio 1 as their main role not to swanning off doing other projects. Weekends you can get away with being off for a month/6 weeks etc  but not a day time key slot. Annie seems an exception so maybe there’s a family reason for going back to Ireland. Greg, Scott and Grimmy might get to negotiate an additional 2/3 weeks a year to do Radio 2, Cricket etc but wouldn’t have thought any longer

JK & Joel should've taken weekday afternoons from Edith Bowman. 

When i was a young lad obsessed with the Chart show i remember Newsbeat announcing JK&Joel taking over. Then my thought was okay where's Wes going? Oh he's gone i was gutted.

Luke Franks used to sit in for Alice Levine back in 2017. I remember him being really good and slick on air, but I also remember seeing how his style was too 'commercial' for Radio 1. I would have liked to hear him do a few more shows to adapt his style to Radio 1.

Pete Allison would have been good for a promotion too, and the names Jameela Jamil, Dan and Phil spring to mind...

Jameela did Chart and then Clara took over to become the last ever Sunday Chart Show host for about 5 months before it moved to Fridays

I wonder why they didn't move Clara to the Friday slot instead of Greg?

I know he's still on, but: Phil Taggart. Him getting 10 PM with Alice was fine, then they gave him one hour per week, got moved to 3 AM, and now he has The Chillest Show on Planet Earth, which is decent show in a fitting timeslot, just doesn't fit him at all. For example I'd trade 9 PM RMC for a Loudest Show on Planet Earth with Phil any time.
