Capital FM will give morning presenter Roberto, the boot as they make their first major change to the schedule of the station. Mid-morning presenter Roberto will be replaced by evening show host Rich Clarke, whilst Luke Smith also leaves the station.
This comes as Capital look to put their new schedule in place. As of the 2nd of April this will be introduced and James Bar will fill Rich Clarke’s evening spot between 7-11pm and in-return Jame’s late night show will be covered by former KISSFM presenter Will Cozens, while Choice FM’s afternoon host Pandora moves to Capital to cover the overnight shift in the latter part of the week. As well this weekend presenter Emily Segal will do the 3-6am shift on Mondays and Tuesdays and it is RadioTodays understanding that CapitalFM’s Manchester presenter Ant Payne will also move to Leicester Square to take-over some weekend network shows.
A spokeswoman from Global Radio said; “Roberto is no longer with Capital. He has always worked extensively in other areas of broadcasting, such as voice-overs and television work, and will be going to pursue those interest. We are confident Roberto will achieve equal amounts of success this year as he has had in his radio career with Captial, and he leaves with our best wishes for the future.”
