Capital Breakfast Show with Jordan North, Chris Stark and Sian Welby launches in April

Jordan steps into the slot following the decision by Roman Kemp to step away from early mornings. Roman, after a decade with Capital, announced live on the breakfast programme back in February that he would be leaving the station just before Easter.

Roman said at the time of his announcement of pending departure, “I’ve loved every single moment of my time at Capital. The last 10 years have been amazing and hosting the legendary Capital Breakfast is the best job ever. But after almost seven years of early alarms, I’m looking forward to some lie-ins and it’s time to hand over the baton! It’s been a privilege and an honour to wake up millions of people every day. It’s the best job in radio and I’ll miss our listeners and the team at Global lots.”

Kemp joined Capital in 2014 going on to host the prestigious Capital Evening Show in 2016. In 2017 he moved to Capital Breakfast and took the show nationwide in 2019. Roman has a regular hosting role on BBC One’s The One Show.

James Rea, Chief Content & Broadcasting Officer at Global:

“Having heard the preparation for the show, the team here are very excited to get the all new Capital Breakfast show on air.  The connection and fun between Jordan, Chris and Sian makes for a great listen. Capital will be going big with a huge nationwide advertising campaign, including billboards, bus-sides, social and digital media carrying the creative: “Jordan North has entered the chat!”

Listen to Capital Breakfast with Jordan North, Chris Stark and Sian Welby from the 8th April weekdays 6am – 10am across the UK and on Global Player, the official Capital app.
