More daytime schedule changes at Hits Radio

Sarah-Jane Crawford is moving from the evening show to afternoons on Hits Radio, replacing Debbie Mac.

As a result, Jordan Lee, currently covering the evening show, will replace Sarah-Jane from 7pm weekdays.

Sarah-Jane will also continue on The UK Chart Show every Sunday 4-7pm.

All programmes will be broadcast on Hits Radio Manchester and across the Hits Radio network of stations.

The changes come as Debbie Mac leaves the station today, just weeks after Gethin Jones departed the breakfast show.

Details of a new breakfast show have not yet been announced but are expected shortly.

Gary Stein, Group Programme Director, Hits Radio Network said: “One year on from launch, we remain focused on the Hits Radio Network growing to become the UK’s leading radio network and station, and the destination for music lovers who seek the biggest hits along with the biggest throwbacks.

“Both on her show and as a host of our Hits Radio Live events, Sarah-Jane Crawford has proven herself as engaging and passionate, and we’re pleased to appoint Jordan Lee whose enthusiasm for our music offering radiates through everything he does.”

Jordan Lee said: “Like me, the Hits Radio audience love to be kept up to date with what’s new and fresh. With the top 5 trending tracks played each evening along with the latest from some of music’s biggest artists, the show is an amazing way for our listeners to keep their finger on the pulse whilst also whizzing up something in the kitchen, working out, or enjoying a catch-up with pals. I can’t wait to provide their evening soundtrack!”
