Nick Grimshaw is moved from Breakfast show at BBC Radio 1


BBC radio host Nick Grimshaw is to be moved from Radio 1’s coveted Breakfast show slot due to the rating slide, it has been announced. The former X Factor judge will take over the afternoon drivetime show – swapping roles with Greg James, who will replace him at the show. In a statement, Grimshaw said that it was his dream job and he was living in a dream for 6 years, so he is very grateful for such a period in his life. “I had the time of my life. I’ve decided it’s time for a change and a new show. I love Radio 1 and can’t wait to get on with the new time slot and the removal of all alarms from my house,” he joked, adding that he is actually looking forward to waking up hearing Greg James’ voice on the radio. James said: “I am completely beside myself that I’ve been given the chance to present the most famous radio show in the world. It really doesn’t get any bigger than this and I really want to build on the great work Grimmy has done. The listeners have become like mates during the ten years I’ve been on air, so to be there when they wake up is a real honor.They’re always front and centre and this will of course be the case on the new breakfast show. It’s going to be the most enjoyable challenge I’ve ever undertaken and I can’t wait to get started.”
