Greg Burns gets a new radio gig

Weekend show on Hits Radio

Comedian and radio presenter Greg Burns is to host a new Saturday morning show across the Hits Radio Network.

He currently hosts the breakfast show with Fleur East and James Barr – but the trio will be adding a  9am Saturday slot from this weekend.

It will include a rerun of some of the content that aired in the week’s breakfast shows.

Paul Gerrard, the network’s programme director, said: ‘The new show will allow the team to bring their infectious chemistry, humour and even more stars from the world of music, movies and entertainment to our network.’ 

Burns moved to Australia to host a mid-morning show on Nova in Sydney in 2016, but returned to the UK earlier in the year for the Hits job.

Based in Manchester, the Hits network comprises  21 local radio stations in the Midlands, Northern England and Scotland as well as a nationwide broadcast on DAB.
