Who knew Sky would become the home of interesting music programmes? Sky Arts has signed up both Ronnie Wood and c to host new music-based shows later this year. The new programmes come as the Sky channel screens footage from thirteen festivals this summer.

Wood will present a TV version of his Absolute radio show, while Whiley will front a music-focused debate programme and a second show called ‘Jo Whiley Live’. Both are likely to provide a new platform for bands busy promoting new releases to perform.

Confirming the new appointments, Sky Arts boss James Hunt said, simply: “Jo and Ronnie are wonderful assets. We’re delighted”.
