Chellaston to Radio 1
Introducing the freshest new voice at BBC Radio 1 - former Chellaston School pupil Andrew Jackson.
Ambaston's Andrew Jackson is hoping to make a big impact at BBC Radio 1 after being handed the reins of a three-hour show
The former Chellaston School pupil has been given the chance to impress as guest presenter of the 4-7am early breakfast show - the same time slot given to Chris Moyles when he first started at the station.
The one-off programme is part of Andrew's prize for winning 'Best Male Presenter' at the Student Radio Awards for his show on Manchester University's Fuse FM.
The 21-year-old Politics, Philosophy and Economics student has also spent a week on work experience with Colin Murray as part of the prize, which was presented by Scott Mills and Jo Whiley.
He said: "I honestly wasn’t expecting it, but I’m really, really chuffed. Everyone in student radio puts a lot of time and effort into their shows and it’s great to have that work recognised.
“It’s pretty daunting knowing I’m talking to the whole nation and not just eight square miles of Manchester, but I reckon by the time I’ve done a few days with Colin Murray, Dan (his producer) and I will just be able to enjoy ourselves. It’s going to be really good fun.”
You can hear Andrew's BBC Radio 1 debut from 4am on Friday, 20th April.
