Russell Brand returns to the airwaves with new Radio X show

Russell Brand will make his return to live radio this Sunday with a new show on Radio X. 

Brand will host Sunday mornings on Radio X from 11am to 1pm. He will be joined by special guests in the Radio X studio, with the show also being turned into a podcast.

"I'm going to be on Radio X - the show will be about joy, unity and togetherness," said Brand. "Sorry for any offence in advance."

Brand will return to Global – the media & entertainment group which is home to Radio X - after an eight year hiatus from live radio. He previously presented on XFM.

Matt Deverson, Radio X managing editor, said: “Radio X is home to big personalities and we’re incredibly excited to be welcoming Russell back for his live radio return. He’s a huge talent and his Sunday morning show is going to become a must-listen for fans of his irreverent humour. He’s part of the Radio X family and we can’t wait to have him back on air.”

It will be Brand's first regular radio slot since his departure from BBC Radio 2 in 2008 in the wake of the Andrew Sachs prank calls row with Jonathan Ross.
