Danny Howard to replace Annie Mac on BBC Radio 1
Danny Howard has recently been confirmed as Annie Mac’s replacement on her iconic and reputed Saturday Night Anthems show. Filling in for the esteemed radio DJ while she takes her maternity leave in January of next year, Howard will be taking over the fabled 7pm to 10pm slot on the station.
Joining BBC Radio 1 back in April of 2012, the Brit impressed shows executives at a DJ Talent competition in Ibiza the year prior. Going on to his lay claim to his current 4pm to 7pm slot, he pulls in nearly two millions listeners every week during the prime time period. Also holding his own online show, ‘Nothing Else Matters’ through SiriusXM simultaneously, the masterful curation of playlists is something of a forte for Danny Howard.
Touring regularly also, Danny Howard is one of the most prominent figures within dance music as a whole. Playing at the like of Creamfields, Pacha Ibiza and V Festival, he has also had his studio productivity featured by Spinnin’ Records also this year.
Commenting on the scheduled takeover, its fair to say a lot can expected from the temporary change of guard at BBC Radio 1’s premium dance music show;
“Wow. It’s absolutely surreal to be looking after the biggest dance & electronic music radio show in the world and an honour to be sitting in Annie’s seat. I’ve been listening to this show on Radio 1 religiously for the last ten years so I’m beyond excited to contribute to everything it stands for in breaking artists, delivering the best in new music and most of all, officially starting the weekend on BBC Radio 1. Friday nights…let’s go!”
