    Scott Temple said: ‘Sandwiched between Ken Bruce and Simon Mayo – what a way to spend my day! Can’t wait to get started on Greatest Hits Radio and to keep everyone up to date with what’s going on in the Duchy. Hope you can join me and my brilliant co-host Holly for our first show.’

    Holly Day said: ‘I’m thrilled to be joining Scott on afternoons on Greatest Hits Radio. We’re both looking forward to sharing all the local news and info – and of course the essential Surf Report – with listeners every day, alongside all those greatest hits from the 70s, 80s and 90s. See you soon!’

    Simon Mayo

    Simon Mayo hosts Drivetime every weekday at 4pm and The Album Show on Sundays from 1pm.

    Simon said of his Drivetime show: "I think the thing about Drivetime is that it is like the flip side of breakfast. You kind of know what an awful lot of people are doing, it's the end of most people's day, they're doing some final bits of work, they're shutting the laptop, they're doing a bit of food preparation, they're driving home. I think it is that sense of camaraderie, it's the end of the day, people want to be cheered up and they want to spend some time with some decent folk on the radio!"

TV can be direct, too, but the camera operator is always in your line of vision! I enjoy sharing my favourite music, and my admittedly freakish knowledge of it, with people who care about that music. I love the opportunity for challenging talk overs, too!"
