It’s part of a shake-up of the schedule at the  station, with Paul Carlin moving to drive time. He takes over from Mark Mathews, who will be hosting the Sunday afternoon show. XS Night Time’s Sophie Yates will be moved forward to 7pm.

Meanwhile Breakfast Show producer, Matt White has been promoted to programme manager.

“I’m really excited about the changes to our show line-up on Real XS and I can’t wait to get stuck into my new role on the station.  We have some great talent on-air and I look forward to working with the team to continue to develop the sound of Real XS,” said White.
