Radiowise reports:

PopBitch has reported Chris Moyles is joining London-based XFM in September to host the breakfast show. First, Chris is out of work and available, second, current host Jon Holmes has had a good run, and third, we think there’s a bigger plan for XFM.

And – we’ve just noticed Chris’ old Radio 1 newsreader Dominic Byrne has started work at XFM’s sister station LBC this week. Reunion?

In December the station owners Global announced it would be launching new services nationally on the national digital radio platform Digital One – “The new deal with D1 sees Global take significant capacity nationally on D1, cementing its brand led strategy and increasing its national digital services to five, with more to come.”

We’re still waiting for Heart Extra, which was planned for ‘the new year’ and there’s space available from July when national rock station TeamRock disappears.

Global doesn’t comment on rumours, the company told RadioWise today.

Putting a high profile, much followed radio personality on DAB only across most of the country is a great move for digital radio – a real reason for thousands of people to go and buy (and actually use) a DAB set.

If the rumours are true – we’ll look forward to the saviour of radio becoming the savour of digital radio.
