You may have noticed that as of this morning there was a big change in London’s breakfast radio landscape. On Friday afternoon news spread like wildfire that Johnny Vaughan had left Capital Radio and that Greg Burns would be filling in with Lisa Snowdon.

As London’s biggest commercial breakfast show, Johnny Vaughan’s departure from Capital will lead to an interesting shake up of London’s radio talent. In the short term, Greg Burns is nominally ‘filling in’ until a big name replacement is found. Rumour has it that Johnny Vaughan is moving on to a prime time TV commitment (Daybreak?), but for now Capital’s phenomenally successful tradition of market leading breakfast shows is under the spotlight. Will Greg Burns grow into it? Will audience grow or decline? The new year breakfast show battleground promises to be even livelier than usual, we wait and listen with intrigue…
