Headlining a refreshed weekend schedule on Classic FM, Aled will host the station’s flagship Sunday morning programme from 9am to midday, starting on Sunday 3rd March.
Aled will play the finest selection of classical music – including plenty of his personal favourites - providing the perfect Sunday morning wake-up call for Classic FM’s 5.4 million listeners.
One of the UK’s best-loved presenters and performers, Aled is currently co-host of ITV’s Daybreak. He will be joining a host of other high profile presenters and musicians on Classic FM including John Suchet, Alan Titchmarsh, Myleene Klass, Alex James, Nicholas Owen and Margherita Taylor.
As part of the exciting weekend line-up on Classic FM, Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen moves to Sunday lunchtimes (midday to 3pm), Jamie Crick becomes the new voice of Saturday afternoons (3pm to 5pm), while Anne-Marie Minhall is the new host of our weekend More Music Breakfast shows on Saturday and Sunday (6am to 9am).
Aled Jones said: "I am so delighted to be joining the top team at Classic FM. Sunday radio is in my heart and I can't wait to be at the helm of their flagship weekend programme. I'll be playing some of my favourite music as well as some of yours so come and be part of it from the beginning of March. It really does feel like I've come home – so why don't you wake up with me every Sunday on Classic FM?"
Global Radio’s Director of Broadcasting Richard Park said: “Aled is a first class broadcaster and this, alongside his outstanding classical music pedigree, makes him a very welcome new member of the Classic FM family.”
