Brent Tobin, Managing Editor of the Capital Brand, said: “It’s an exciting time for Capital and Capital XTRA as we launch a refreshed schedule across both stations. We have some incredibly talented rising stars within the team who’ve proved hugely popular with our listeners.
“It’s particularly rewarding to see Dynamic secure his own show on Capital XTRA. He’s been a highly valued member of the team since he graduated from Global Academy four years ago, as well as a brilliantly talented DJ, so it’s fantastic to see him land a new show.
“I’m delighted to welcome everyone on board as Capital and Capital XTRA brings a big new sound for the Spring.
“We’d also like to thank JJ and Will Cozens for all their hard work on Capital. They’re brilliant members of the team and we wish them all the very best.”
