Capital Radio hasn’t looked very far for a replacement for Johnny Vaughan on its prime time show, though arguably Dave Berry – former Xfm DJ and current Capital weekend breakfast host – is a very good choice indeed, though whether the Vaughan faithful will agree remains to be seen.

Berry will join Vaughan’s former co-host Lisa Snowdon on the Capital breakfast show from January. Confirming the hire, Global Radio’s programming chief Richard Park told reporters: “Dave Berry is a massive radio talent, and has already proved himself a huge hit with Capital listeners. I am convinced that the chemistry between him and Lisa Snowdon will make for great radio and that the show will become a must-listen for London every weekday morning”.
