BBC Radio 1 and 1Xtra today announced that MistaJam will cover Annie Mac’s 7-9pm weekday new music show on Radio 1 when she takes her maternity leave in January 2017.
MistaJam joined Radio 1Xtra in 2005 to present an overnight Thursday night show and has quickly risen through the ranks at the station. He currently presents 1Xtra’s weekday evening Monday-Thursday, 7-10pm show – playing future classics and cutting-edge new music – and is also a staple of the Saturday night Radio 1 and 1Xtra simulcast (7-10pm).
The DJ said:
“Having grown up listening to the show since the days of it being the Evening Session, I feel honoured to be given the opportunity to look after 7-9pm on BBC Radio 1. While Annie’s off bringing new life into the world, I’m really excited to be able to share my passion for exciting new music regardless of genre with the Radio 1 audience.”
DJ Target will stand in for MistaJam, hosting 1Xtra’s 7-10pm Monday-Thursday new music show. Target currently hosts 1Xtra’s 7-10pm Friday night show, a 1Xtra Homegrown new music show, Sundays, 4-7pm, and presents Radio 1 and 1Xtra’s 1-4am simulcast Saturday night into Sunday morning show.
BBC Radio 1 listeners, enjoy!
