Robin Galloway to host new Breakfast show in Scotland

As part of its audience growth plans, Bauer Media Scotland has announced that Robin Galloway will host a new landmark nationwide breakfast show to be broadcast across its Greatest Hits Network from 1st July.  Galloway currently hosts Clyde 1’s drivetime show, and is one of Scotland’s best-known and highly regarded presenters.

His new show is an integral part of Bauer Media’s plans to bring the very best programming and content to audiences across the whole of Scotland, whilst also retaining, producing and broadcasting local news, sport, traffic & travel and “what’s on“ information from each of the local Greatest Hits Network stations it serves; Clyde 2, Forth 2, Northsound 2, Tay AM and West Sound.

Based on listener insight, the launch is a key part of Bauer Media’s strategic plans for the GHN, designed to create future focused brands and content in order to grow and delight audiences.  The Greatest Hits Network currently reaches 368,000 people every week (RAJAR Q1 2013) via its carefully targeted and compelling entertainment, music and personality-led content, who can listen and engage via DAB, online, mobile app and AM frequencies.

In addition to the exciting new breakfast show, the Greatest Hits Network is increasing its specialist music output, by introducing a daily themed show every weekday at 7pm; plus extending its tailored and curated weekend specialist shows to broadcast right across Scotland.

A new two-hour Scotland-wide topical talk show is also launching on Sunday mornings focusing on the issues affecting Scotland, such as the independence referendum. This stimulating show will be hosted by Ally Bally, with input from Bauer Media Scotland’s news teams as well as political Editor Colin McKay.

Graham Bryce, Managing Director, Bauer Media Scotland said;
“Robin is one of the most talented presenters in Scotland, who brings with him years of experience entertaining audiences across the nation, most notably in Edinburgh, Glasgow and Aberdeen. Having him spearhead our Greatest Hit’s Network revitalisation and being the voice of the brands across the nation is a clear indication of how serious we are about these stations, investing in the best possible content for our listeners and winning new audiences.

We’re confident that this new and potent mix of entertainment and music content, delivered by the right personalities, will continue to delight, engage and grow local audiences right across Scotland.“

Robin Galloway, new Greatest Hits Network breakfast show presenter, said:
"Right now I'm pinching myself. To host a brand new breakfast show for Scotland is not only an honour but way beyond my wildest dreams. Of course, as I'll be rising in the middle of the night, that's it for the dreaming.  The new show will feature some of my signature segments plus brand new features, the greatest hits and of course everything you need to start your day.  It really will be the most entertainment you can have with your clothes on - if you know what I mean."
