Digital rock station Planet Rock has announced a new recruit for its breakfast show in the form of Paul Anthony, who most recently worked for rival rock station Rock Radio, recently rebranded Real Radio XS by owners GMG Radio of course. Prior to that Anthony worked for two decades in local commercial radio, possibly most notably for Signal Radio in Staffordshire.

Confirming that Anthony will take over Planet Rock breakfast on 3 Jan, the station’s Programme Director Trevor White told reporters: “Paul is a great fit for us – he is exactly the talent we’ve been looking for and he is ready to take breakfast to its rightful place at Planet Rock. He brings an encyclopaedic knowledge of rock, unbridled enthusiasm and a contact book that reads like a who’s who of rock music”.

Anthony himself added: “For me this is like winning the lottery. If you are a rock fan, Planet Rock is the only place to be – and for once the timing was right for both of us. I am really looking forward to waking up the entire UK with the best music in the world. It doesn’t get much better than that”.
