    Downhill, Don't like Fearne Cotton or Greg James or that Nick Grimshaw now does the 10 - 12 slot.

    I'm glad Chris Moyles is still on till 10am he makes me laugh in the mornings when you get up at like 7am and you need someone to make you laugh at 7am!

    I agree with the above that i'm glad Nihal has gone!!

    And i'm glad Fearne Cotton is on after as I really don't like Jo Whiley she tends to go on about how great she is the whole time like "I did this" and "I met.....". She then plays bands which may be a little unknown and then acts like she discovered them when she didn't she just gets payed to talk about them!

    Altho I do have to say I think Fearne is better at presenting than radio

    I'm guessing Zane is still on after 7pm? not that I ever listen lol!

    I hope Fearne doesn't speak; that is the only way I could bear it.

    Not a fan, I don't find Greg James very good. I'm not too bothered about Jo Whiley going to weekends but can find Fearne Cotton so annoying when she says things like "tuneage"! Ugh. I quite liked Edith Bowman's show. Shame. Love Vernon Kay and Sara Cox wish they were on more

    Better, only really listen on weekdays, and I dont like Jo Whiley/ Edith Bowman, so maybe the replacements will be more entertaining

    My thoughts exactly! Have to turn off everytime he says "infotainment" or starts going on about the 3:15 fact machine. Arrgh he's just so repetitive! I'll miss Jo Whiley though. Sara Cox, not Fearne, should have replaced her if she had to go.

    I agree! Both of them presenting on their own are usually rubbish, I prefer the Radio1 shows where there's a team or at least a couple of people cause the banter makes it more interesting to listen to.

    Jo Whiley annoys me, i get the impression that she wants to become the new John Peel, but a girl. Fearne Cotton annoys me more then her though, she's only good to look at, which is quiet hard to do on the radio.

    I like Edith, but I like Greg James also, he wakes me up in the morning, so on that i'm not too arsed.

    But Scott Mills is still on, 4-7, i do love him so so much, he's easily the best.

    Well pleased greg is on at a normal hour
    Nice to be able to listen to Reggie without Fearne, although she doesn't annoy me that much
    According to Nihal's twitter, these changes are from the end of September

    Fearne Cotton on weekday mornings? Nooo! It's just not right.

    I'd also prefer Sara Cox to replace Jo Whiley if it had to happen..
