Sam Thompson to take over weeknights on Hits Radio UK

Weekday evenings on your radio are set for a shake up as Made in Chelsea star Sam Thompson launches a new show across the Hits Radio Network in England and Wales and UK Wide on Hits Radio.

The new show HITS UK WITH SAM THOMPSON will launch on Monday January 9th and be a new home for Sam who currently presents a Sunday morning slot for the network. Every Monday to Thursday from 7 til 10pm Sam will be joined by the biggest names in music, film and TV, and his show will be THE place for breaking new songs and new artists that will soon become the future BIGGEST hits for the network.

The three hours will still include the usual incredible mix of Biggest Hits and Throwbacks that Hits Radio listeners know and love, but with the added bonus of chat, music and all the latest entertainment news.

Sam said: ‘What a start to 2023! I cannot wait to bring all my favourite new artists, tunes and entertainment picks to Hits listeners across the UK – and to finally have a lie-in on a Sunday morning! From January 9th join me from 7pm every Monday to Thursday for great music, great gossip – just general all-round greatness. Weeknights are the new weekends!’

Paul Gerrard, Hits Radio Content Director said: ‘We’re delighted that Sam is set to become an even bigger part of the Hits family in 2023 with his new show. Sam’s hugely infectious attitude towards the artists Hits Radio loves, and the TV and films our audience love to watch, is going to make this show one of the UK’s number one entertainment destinations.’

Peter Black, Director of Music, Bauer Audio said: ‘When I joined Bauer last year the opportunity that excited me most was the chance to develop creative opportunities for artists, labels and managers across the UK. Sam’s new show is exactly that opportunity realised and I know our Hits Radio audience are going to love it.’
