Smooth Radio has announced that Lynn Parsons will take over the network’s morning show next year once Mark Goodier has left the station. Goodier announced last month that he would depart Smooth in December to concentrate on his Wise Buddah business. Parsons currently presents a weekend show on Smooth, which will be taken over by David Prever when she moves to weekdays.

Confirming all this, the Programme Director of Real And Smooth Ltd, John Simons, told Radio Today: “It’s great to be able to make Lynn a permanent feature on the weekday schedule. She has a very warm yet knowledgeable style and is well liked by the listeners. She is also one of the UK’s most experienced broadcasters. David has provided weekend cover on the station this year and I am delighted to welcome him as a permanent fixture in the schedule”.

Smooth Radio, of course, is in the process of being acquired by Global Radio. A competition regulator investigation into that deal is unlikely to rule until next March, after which it’s not clear what plans Global would have for the Smooth network and the FM frequencies it uses.
