Former Sun journalist Gordon Smart is getting a daily evening show on Radio X, which will be in addition the Sunday show he already presents for the station.

Smart, who previously had a weekly show on the Global-owned station in its Xfm days, resumed his weekend programme last April after moving back to London following a stint editing The Scottish Sun.

That coincided with his promotion to a Deputy Editor role at the tabloid, a job he then quit in November, despite some tipping him as a future editor on the sometime controversial newspaper. At the time he said he wanted to focus on his business and broadcasting projects, hence the bigger commitment to Radio X, I guess.

“I’m absolutely delighted about stepping into the evening slot on Radio X”, says Smart. “I love the station and dreamed of doing a show more regularly. The stable of talent on air, producing the shows and behind the scenes is exceptional. I love the music on Radio X, thrive on big interviews and thoroughly enjoy the company of the loyal listeners. I can’t wait to get stuck in to the next adventure with the good people at Global. Here we go!”

Here we go indeed. Smart’s increased output on Radio X is, of course, fantastic. Or so says Global’s Director Of Broadcasting Richard Park, who states: “Gordon is already a big hit with Radio X listeners. He is passionate about the music that our listeners love with a phenomenal knowledge of the worlds of music and entertainment. To have him broadcasting on Radio X six days a week is fantastic and we’re very excited about his brand new evening show”.

Smart’s new show kicks off on Monday at 7pm.
