Global Radio’s Xfm announced last week that Danielle Perry, formerly of Bauer’s Kerrang! and Q radio stations, is to become its new evening presenter, hosting the 7pm-10pm slot from 22 Apr.

Perry takes over from Jon Hillcock, who has been covering the show on a temporary basis since January, and who said via his website: “As of the 22 Apr I’ll no longer be presenting the Xfm Evening Show, and very pleased to be handing over the reigns to the hugely talented and passionate Danielle Perry”.

Confirming his stint on Xfm’s evening slot was always a temporary arrangement (something we didn’t know at the time), he continues: “At the start of the year I was asked to step in and mind the show on an interim basis (something I was always aware of but unable to mention), and in that relatively short space of time I’ve had the chance to give airtime to loads of amazing new bands and artists, host awesome live sessions and interview a wide range of musical heroes – both new and established – from James Blake, Fryars and Ty Segall to Bobby Gillespie, Foals and Biffy Clyro”.

Hillcock, of course, can still be heard online via his own rather marvellous regular podcast All Back No Front.
