Andi Peters will be hosting a new Sunday afternoon show for the Smooth Radio network, starting this weekend.

The long-term appointment follows two Bank Holiday specials in May.

“With a string of TV, voice over and radio presenting credits to his name, Andi  brings a great deal of experience with him to Smooth Radio and we’re excited to have him join the team of exceptional talent we are proud to have on-air,” said Smooth Radio programme director, Steve Collins.

Based in Salford Quays, Real and Smooth Ltd is the new name for GMG Radio, following its takeover by Global Radio Holdings in 2012. Global is still fighting a ruling by the Competition Commission which said it needed to sell 7 stations for the acquisition to go through.

“I’m thrilled to be joining Smooth Radio and can’t wait to get started with my new show.  What better way to spend a Sunday morning, than playing great music and sharing some fun chat with listeners across the UK,” said Peters.
