Kennedy Taylor joins Capital XTRA

Global, The Media & Entertainment Group, has today (4 September) unveiled a fresh new Autumn schedule for Capital XTRA, home to the biggest Hip Hop and RnB tunes. Fronted by some of the brand’s biggest rising stars and a host of exciting new signings, the new shows launch on air and on Global Player today.

Omah Howard will take the reins of the prestigious mid-morning slot on Capital XTRA Monday to Friday from 10am – 1pm. Omah joined Capital XTRA in September 2022 as the host of the Capital XTRA Evening Show and has since interviewed some of the world’s biggest artists. Omah is taking over mid-mornings from the legendary Manny Norté, one of the UK’s most respected figures in music, who will continue to host his huge Saturday and Sunday night shows, going into the mix Saturdays 7pm – 11pm and Sundays 7pm – 10pm.

In-demand Manchester DJ Kennedy Taylor, who has played in London, Dubai and Lisbon, as well as DJing for the likes of RAYE and Ms Banks, joins Capital XTRA this autumn, jumping into Friday nights from 11pm – 1am.

After two years of building a loyal fan base on Capital, Kamilla Rose moves to sister station Capital XTRA to host Monday to Thursday, 7pm – 10pm. West London presenter Jojo Silva will be keeping listeners company in the early hours as she takes over Monday to Friday from 4am – 6.30am on the station. Jojo has been covering on Capital XTRA but will now take a permanent slot on the schedule this Autumn.

Glory Beyi will be serving up the hottest Hip Hop and RnB bangers Saturday and Sunday mornings from 6am – 9am.

Remel London will be leaving Saturday afternoons but will remain as the voice-over artist on Capital. Jourds becomes the new host of Saturdays and Sundays, 4-7pm.

“We’re excited to be bringing a fresh energy to Capital XTRA with a brand new schedule this Autumn. We have some brilliant new shows and signings coming to the station and I want to congratulate Omah, Jourds, Jojo, and Glory on their new slots, whilst also giving a special thanks to Manny for an iconic run, on mid-mornings… I can’t wait to hear him give even more energy to his weekend shows! Finally I’m thrilled to have Kennedy and Kamilla join the family to help further strengthen the quality of the output of Capital XTRA.” MATT DEVERSON, MANAGING EDITOR OF CAPITAL XTRA
