Pete Donaldson will be taking over weekday evenings on Absolute Radio. The decision, set to freshen up the schedule, was driven by Content Director Tony Moorey who has recently assumed wider responsibility at Absolute Radio across all content and programming.
Pete Donaldson’s show will feature live sessions, music interviews and requests plus a brand new album of the week feature. The programme will also look to support new music, providing opportunities and airtime for emerging artists as well as established acts. The show will also provide prospective brand partners with a new attractive sponsorship opportunity.
Arriving at Absolute Radio in May 2011, Pete Donaldson immediately established himself as the man behind new music at the station. He leaves his Sunday night Music Club show, a showcase of untried, and often unsigned bands to Sarah Champion who will also co-host the stations coverage of the 2013 Isle of Wight Festival with Donaldson.
Elsewhere Vicki Blight returns to weekend breakfast and Pete Mitchell hosts a new programme on Saturday nights after the Absolute Classic Rock Party. Andy Bush will have an additional Sunday morning show.
Pete Donaldson’s new slot from 8pm-midnight Mondays to Thursday will begin from Monday 8th April. The show’s outgoing host Mark Crossley will continue to present weekend programmes alongside weekday mornings on Absolute Radio 90s. Donaldson can also be heard Monday to Friday on Absolute Radio 90s from 2pm-5pm and he will continue to be the station’s man on the red carpet at big events, reporting into The Geoff Lloyd’s Hometime Show.
