Capital, the UK’s no.1 hit music brand, today (Wednesday 21st February 2024) announced broadcaster and radio presenter, Jordan North, as the brand new host of Global’s flagship Capital Breakfast show.

One of the fastest rising stars in broadcasting, Jordan North is joining Capital from BBC Radio 1, replacing Roman Kemp who is stepping down after 10 years with the station.

As well as previously presenting drive for Radio 1, Jordan co-hosts hit podcast ‘Help I Sexted My Boss!’, had a hugely successful stint on ‘I’m a Celebrity’ and is set to return for another season on ‘Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway’, this weekend on ITV1.

Jordan joins Capital as the brand experiences rapid growth, with a huge 7.9 million listeners tuning in every week.

Jordan North said: “I am beyond excited to be joining Global and to wake up the nation every morning on Capital - I can't wait to start working with the amazing team here and get stuck in, to create the most fun and entertaining breakfast show. Getting to host Capital Breakfast has always been a dream of mine and it’s a once in a lifetime opportunity that I simply couldn’t turn down.”

Chris Stark said: “I’m buzzing for this amazing opportunity to be reunited with Jordan on the radio again. Together with Sian, the three of us are so excited to bring you the new Capital Breakfast Show. It’s going to be a LOT of fun!”

Sian Welby said: “The Capital Breakfast show has always been about genuine friendship and honest conversation and that’s why I know the Capital audience are going to love Jordan in the same way they do Roman. He’s a normal down to earth, humble lad, who’s already part of our friendship group, so expect the same level of mickey taking and silliness. I want the listeners to welcome him with open arms, and treat him like they do us! Jordan has some of the most ridiculous true stories that I can’t wait for people to hear. It’s going to be a lot of fun! Strap yourselves in, it’s gonna be another wild ride!”

Jordan will also host Capital’s Summertime Ball in June 2024.

Ashley Tabor-King CBE, Founder & Executive President of Global, said: “This is a great signing for Capital and it’s a genuine pleasure to welcome Jordan to the Global family! Jordan’s a hugely experienced radio presenter and his warmth, genuine relatability and energy, combined with a spirit for mischief and unrivalled knowledge of hit music, is a perfect fit for Capital breakfast. Jordan is on the up and up and his time is now. A very warm welcome to Capital, Jordan!”

Brent Tobin, Managing Editor, Capital said: “Jordan is an absolute star with that winning combination of a flair for live radio and a deep connection with the audience. We are very excited to have him join us! It’s the start of a brilliant new era for the station.”
