Edge Radio hires Micky Gavin and Yasmin Zemmoura

Former Real Radio and Bauer presenter Micky Gavin and Yasmin Zemmoura from Q Radio in Belfast are joining Edge Radio.

Yasmin aka Yazz, who will be making a return to the Edinburgh airwaves, has spent the last 10 years in Belfast presenting on Q Radio and will host weekend afternoons.

Micky Gavin was most recently on Forth 2 hosting Drivetime.

Yazz said; ”I love Edinburgh and love the localness of Edge Radio. To be back working with Jay, Matt, Mark and Micky again excites me for the summer ahead.”

Micky said: “I can’t wait to get going on Edinburgh’s newest radio station. Joining such a brilliant team, playing the hottest hits and chatting chatting about everything Edinburgh each weekday.”

Edge Radio owner Jay Crawford added: “We’ve had a brilliant year so it seems a perfect time to strengthen our Edge Radio team.

“Micky and I have worked together off and on for 25 years and he’s a fantastic presenter. Yazz has such a lovely radio voice and personality to match. I’m delighted they’ve agreed to join us.”

Edge Radio, available on DAB, will shortly be moving to studios in Edinburgh’s Stockbridge.
