Jenni Falconer moves from Heart to Smooth Radio

Jenni Falconer joining Smooth Radio to present the breakfast show in London and nationwide on Smooth Extra after leaving Heart last year.

She takes over from Gary King, who will present Smooth’s new, national early breakfast show from Monday to Friday, as well as continuing to host Saturday afternoons across the network.

Angie Greaves, who joined Smooth last September to host the brand-new nationwide Smooth Drive Home, will present a new three-hour Sunday morning show.

The Smooth Sanctuary at Seven will now run seven days a week till 10pm hosted by Gary Vincent from Sunday to Friday and Tina Hobley every Saturday.

Jenni Falconer said: “I am beyond thrilled to be joining the Smooth family and truly honoured to help wake up London every weekday morning. I’m no stranger to the early starts, so I can’t wait to keep listeners company as they get ready for their day, set off to work or make their morning cuppa! I’m also excited to host a brand-new nationwide show on Saturday morning – and to be working for a station which plays such a brilliant mix of relaxing music is the icing on the cake for me.”

Jenni left Heart last year to be replaced by James Stewart on Early Breakfast.

Sam Jackson, Smooth Radio’s Senior Managing Editor, said: “What better way to start 2020 on Smooth than to launch our updated schedule, led by a fresh voice on the station, Jenni Falconer. Her warmth, popularity and sense of fun make Jenni the perfect addition to the Smooth team and I’m sure that our listeners will love waking up to her.

“It’s also great to welcome Angie Greaves to the weekend schedule, as she builds on the success of The Smooth Drive Home, which she launched just four months ago. With a fantastic line-up of presenters and a playlist to match, we couldn’t wish for a better start to the new year.”
