BBC Radio 1 has returned to a normal schedule after months of temporary changes implemented as a result of covid-19, with a host of new changes put in place.

From 1 September 2020, among a raft of changes, the brand new schedule will see Radio 1 Breakfast with Greg James move to a new time slot (7-10.30am, Monday-Thursday), meaning listeners can continue to enjoy Greg’s antics until later in the morning. Clara Amfo’s show will move to 10.30am-1pm, followed by Scott Mills from 1-3.30pm and Nick Grimshaw from 3.30-6pm.

The new schedule will also reflect the station’s renewed commitment to supporting new music and emerging artists, with Radio 1’s Future Sounds with Annie Mac moving forward an hour to a new 6-8pm slot. The shake-up will bring Annie’s industry-leading expertise to an even bigger audience on Radio 1, with the renowned Hottest Record in the World feature moving from 7.30pm to the start of the show at 6pm.

A brand new show, Radio 1’s Future Artists with Jack Saunders, will air Monday-Wednesday from 10pm-midnight with a focus on supporting music from artists at the very beginning of their careers as they begin their journey with Radio 1. Jack will continue to host Radio 1’s Indie Show on Thursday evenings in the new time slot of 10pm-midnight.

There are also new shows, new co-hosts and more changes planned in the coming weeks.

Aled Haydn Jones, Head of Radio 1, says: “As a station it’s important we evolve along with the changing needs of our young listeners and I’m pleased to be able to introduce some important changes to the schedule with that in mind as we return to an on-air format that our listeners know and love. A new time slot for Radio 1 Breakfast means we can bring Greg’s trademark brand of light-hearted entertainment to as many young people as possible, while bringing our evening schedule an hour earlier means we can do even more to support new music and breaking new UK artists.”
