Greg James to host Radio 1 Chart Show
BBC Radio 1 is moving its chart show to Friday afternoons, where it will become part of Greg James's drivetime show.
Starting in mid-July, the new show will be two hours long, focusing on the top 20, and will be accompanied by a live TV programme broadcast on CBBC.
The move follows a global agreement by the music industry to release all new albums and singles on Fridays.
It means the chart will now be compiled on Friday mornings, with Radio 1 the first to reveal the latest number one.
We’re taking things to the next stage in our relationship. The Official Chart Show is moving in with me. http://t.co/puUIx7oS0D
