JK and Joel
About the show

JK (Jason King) and Joel (Joel Ross) are currently two of the hottest talents in UK broadcasting.

In 2004 they were the winners of two Sony Radio awards, a Gold for 'Breakfast show of the year' and a Silver for 'Entertainment show'. The pair first came together on Viking Radio in Hull when Joel moved from the afternoon show he was hosting to join JK on breakfast. Instantly it became clear that the boys had a natural broadcasting rapport as well as great ability to communicate with the audience. Their cheeky, laddish, infectious style ensured a rapid rise in audience ratings and the move to Manchester's Key 103.

On television the boys have presented Playboyz, a fast moving gadget series for Granada Men and Motors and Motor Maniacs, a series dedicated to men obsessed with bikes and cars. Most recently, they have been the hosts of the Pure Soap on BBC 3, a daily 30 minute live show looking at all things to do with soap operas.
