Ronan Keating to host Magic Breakfast
By Andy Malt | Published on Friday 7 April 2017
Ronan Keating is being brought in to present the Magic FM breakfast show as part of an overhaul of the station’s daytime schedule. He’ll be joined by current weekend breakfast host Harriet Scott, who will try her very best to stop Keating pressing the wrong buttons and swearing.
“Ronan and Harriet are the perfect pairing for Magic breakfast”, says Magic Radio Content Director Tony Moorey, which is fortuitous. “He’s an internationally famous singer and presenter, she’s an incredible, award-winning radio broadcaster and together they share a fantastic mix of humour, a passion for those huge songs our listeners love and a genuine talent of creating entertaining shows for the audience”.
Keating adds: “I can’t wait to get started with the new Magic Breakfast show. We’ll make sure you get the perfect start to your day with plenty of laughs, and all the songs you love”.
Meanwhile, Scott says: “Sitting alongside Ronan is going to be a great way to start the day. I’m really excited to be launching this brand new show; it’s going to be a huge amount of fun and I can’t wait to get started”.
Everyone’s excited. I’m so glad. Current breakfast host Nick Snaith is going to move into the 10am-2pm slot, giving him a bit longer in bed. The shifting around will see current daytime presenter Gary Vincent out on his ear (amicably, I’m sure) after over a decade at the station.
