The Wanted’s Max George joins Hits Radio

Singer Max George is joining Hits Radio to host a new Friday evening show called Friday Night Hits.

Hits Radio Programme Director, Paul Gerard said: “We’re delighted to have Max join the team at Hits Radio! His energy and vibes are electric!

“Right now the UK is more hungry for the weekend than ever before and with our social lives getting better by the week and zoom quizzes a thing of the past, we can’t think of a better person to kick start the brand new sound to the Hits Radio Weekend.. Crack open a drink and turn us up!”

Max, who competed in last year’s series of Strictly Come Dancing, is expected to be joined by music friends dropping in to deliver their future hits for him to play on the air.

He commented: “I’m buzzing to be doing Friday nights, I can’t wait to kickstart people’s weekends and what better way to start my own weekend than playing some of the best tunes created from around the world!

“I’ve always loved listening to radio and I feel really proud that I’ve got my own show as big as this one across the UK on Hits Radio.”
