BBC Radio 1 announces Arielle Free as new Weekend Early Breakfast host
Scottish DJ and TV presenter Arielle Free will be joining BBC Radio 1, hosting Weekend Early Breakfast every Friday to Sunday, starting on Friday 6 September. The show is brand new to BBC Radio 1 and will air before Weekend Breakfast with Matt and Mollie.
Arielle, who also presents podcast Love Island: The Morning After and Scrambled! on CITV, as well as previously fronting BBC Scotland coverage of T in the Park. Radio 1 listeners will recognise Arielle from previous shows when she stepped in to cover Early Breakfast and Radio 1’s Dance Anthems.
Arielle will host the new show from Friday to Sunday (Friday 4am-6am / Saturday-Sunday, 5am-7am), whilst Adele Roberts will host the show Mondays to Thursdays.
Arielle Free says: “To use a cliché, it is a dream come true for me to join the greatest radio station in the world. Radio 1 is the reason why I got into broadcasting in the first place and has been the soundtrack to my life. I’ve been a music lover ever since my mum took me from festival to festival in the womb. It’s truly an honour to wake the nation up and ready for the weekend.”
