Radio firm Global has announced that a number of DJs from the dance, hip hop and R&B spin offs of its Capital network will now also have shows on the main Capital FM station. The new shows start airing from tomorrow.

The host of the weekday breakfast show on Capital Dance, Rio Fredrika, will now also front a Saturday morning show on Capital FM. Meanwhile, Jay London and Kemi Rogers from hip hop and R&B centric Capital Xtra also get shows on the main station, the former a weekend afternoon show, the latter a new overnight show during the week.

Those additions to the Capital FM line-up accompany a number of other schedule changes at the Capital branded stations. That includes a new overnight show on Capital Xtra hosted by Dynamic, aka D’angelo Briscoe, who began his career in radio as an apprentice at Capital after graduating from the Global Academy, the media firm’s educational programme that seeks to reduce the barriers for those considering a career in broadcasting.

Commenting on the schedule changes, Brent Tobin, Managing Editor of the Capital brand, said: “It’s an exciting time for Capital and Capital Xtra as we launch a refreshed schedule across both stations. We have some incredibly talented rising stars within the team who’ve proved hugely popular with our listeners”.

“It’s particularly rewarding to see Dynamic secure his own show on Capital Xtra”, he added. “He’s been a highly valued member of the team since he graduated from Global Academy four years ago, as well as a brilliantly talented DJ, so it’s fantastic to see him land a new show. I’m delighted to welcome everyone on board as Capital and Capital Xtra brings a big new sound for the spring”.
