After 11 years in the Breakfast slot, Shaun Keaveny will shift to weekday afternoons.
Meanwhile Mark Radcliffe and Stuart Maconie will front a brand new weekend Breakfast show, taking over the slot that is currently presented by Mary Anne Hobbs. She will switch from weekends to weekday mid-mornings.
Steve Lamacq’s show will stay in its regular weekday slot, and the evening schedule remains.
The brand new schedule will run as follows:
Monday to Friday
5am-7.30am Chris Hawkins (slot extended; previously 5am-7am)
7.30am-10.30am Lauren Laverne (moving from weekdays 10am-1pm, replacing Shaun Keaveny)
10.30am-1pm Mary Anne Hobbs (was previously weekends from 7am-10am, replacing Lauren Laverne)
1pm-4pm Shaun Keaveny (moving from 7am-10am, replacing Mark Radcliffe)
Saturday and Sunday
7-10am Mark Radcliffe and Stuart Maconie (moving from weekdays 1pm-4pm, replacing Mary Anne Hobbs)
Paul Rodgers, Head of 6 Music, says: “Much-loved presenters playing amazing music is at the heart of what 6 Music does, and these schedule changes will help deliver an even greater range of music on the station across daytime and weekends.”
