BBC Asian Network’s Adil Ray replacement?


Once again Biz Asia has been notified by a reliable source that the BBC Asian Network’s major schedule revamp in April/May will see a new late night host. As was revealed exclusively on Biz Asia last month the present late night host Adil Ray is moving to the network’s flagship Drive show. The slot left vacant by Ray looks likely to be filled by Bobby Friction. Bobby Friction has proved a ratings winner on Radio One’s Wednesday night UK Asian music show. He also fronts the Bhangra show The Mix on Sunday afternoons on the BBC Asian Network. It is still unclear as to what will happen to Bobby and Nihal’s Radio One show on Wednesday night if Friction defects to the Asian Network for his new daily late night show. Adil Ray will move to his new afternoon home of 16:00 from Monday 15th May and if the BBC do confirm the Bobby Friction move to late night then he is expected to start his new shift on the same day. The other changes to the daytime schedule on the BBC Asian Network are set to take place in April.
