Simon Hirst joins Gold to present Saturday show

Simon Hirst is joining Global Radio’s Gold to present his own Saturday show.

Starting this weekend, Simon will be playing four hours of the Greatest Hits of All Time every Saturday afternoon from 1pm to 5pm.

Simon will present his new show in addition to co-hosting Yorkshire’s number one commercial breakfast show - Capital Breakfast with Hirsty, Danny & JoJo - on Gold’s sister station 105 Capital FM.

He said: “‘I’ve been a massive fan of Gold for quite a long time, as I’m obsessed with music from all decades. With 20,000 7” singles in my own personal vinyl collection, my friends call me a music geek…so the chance to play some of the greatest hits of all time on Gold during Saturday afternoon, after my weekday Capital Breakfast show is a wonderful opportunity for me.”

Gold’s Programme Director Adrian Stewart said: “We’re thrilled to welcome Simon to Gold. He has a huge passion for the music we play and is the perfect addition to our presenter line-up.”

In the latest radio industry results released by RAJAR *, 1.4 million people are tuning into Gold across the UK every week.

Tune into Simon Hirst every Saturday afternoon from 1pm to 5pm on Gold, available across the UK on AM, digital and online at
