Matt Deverson, Managing Editor of Radio X, said: “I’m thrilled to reveal a refreshed schedule for Radio X in 2023. Dan O’Connell has been with Radio X since day one and absolutely lives and breathes the music we play. He’s the perfect person to take the reins of the legendary Radio X Evening Show.

“I’m also really delighted that Issy Panayis is stepping up into the Radio X daytime line-up. Issy has made a big impression here since she joined in 2016 and consistently delivers incredibly strong audience figures, so this is massively well-deserved.

“Likewise Elspeth Pierce, James Hall and Adam Brown are hugely popular with our listeners, and I’m sure they’ll be brilliant as they take on big new shows.

“Finally we’re delighted to welcome Sophie Sveinsson to Radio X – she’s a highly talented broadcaster who loves her music, and she’ll be a great fit for the station.”
