JOSH WIDDICOMBE ANNOUNCED AS NEW XFM HOST SATURDAYS 10AM TO 1PM
As co-host of Channel 4’s The Last Leg and a regular on shows such as 8 Out of 10 Cats, Mock The Week, Live at the Apollo and Stand Up For The Week, award-winning comedian Josh Widdicombe‘s brand of infectious and understated humour makes him the perfect addition to the XFM family.
Josh said: ‘I am so delighted I have been offered the chance to do this show on a station where I have previously listened to people I love like Adam and Joe, Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant. Also, it’s nice to finally be offered a job where I don’t have to brush my hair.’
XFM Managing Editor Chris Baughen said: ‘XFM has a strong tradition of delivering great comedy on the radio and Josh will only add to this rich history.’
Tune into Josh’s show from Saturday 19th January on 104.9FM in London, 97.7FM in Manchester and across the UK on digital, mobile and online at XFM.co.uk.
