We hear Chris is in charge of everything from 6.30-10 at Radio X, even down to the ad minutage and Facebook page. It's amazing what you can demand when you've been the longest serving presenter on the Radio 1 breakfast show.
That is interesting and good to hear. I have mentioned during all the rumours that I wondered how involved he had been with the creation of Radio X as with Ricky and Vernon it is almost like he did the hiring or at least had some impact on it (Vaughan though is a surprise if that's the case).
I assume it is an Radio X production still and he's not done a complete Chris Evans when he was on Radio 1 and had is own production company make the show causing lots of conflicts with Trevor Dann (as discussed in the Blood on the Carpet doc).
It certainly seems that Chris is there to get bums on seats and Global are happy to let him do it his way which I guess is why he took the job in the first place.
