Chris Moyles has confirmed that his final Breakfast Show on BBC Radio 1 will take place on Friday, September 14th.
The news of the Moyle's last ever show was followed by the announcement that his replacement, Nick Grimshaw, will commence his reign in the early morning slot from September 24th. Moyles will host a 'goodbye party' on Thursday, September 13th.
Moyles revealed his exit on his Breakfast show in July, bringing his eight years in the slot to a close.
"We're off. I wanted to let you know. A couple more months of us, then it's someone else's turn. Thank you for listening," said the 38-year-old said (11 July, 2012).
Moyles began presenting the show in 2004, and is contracted to Radio One until New Year 2014, indicating that he will move to a new slot rather than another BBC station.
"I'd like to thank Chris. Quite simply he's been the most successful breakfast show host in Radio 1 history," says Radio One controller Ben Cooper. "He's done it for more than eight and half years and he's been fantastic."
Cooper has been instrumental in bringing in younger stars to the station after the BBC's governing body found that the station needed to attract more listeners under the age of 30.
Meanwhile, it was recently revealed that the Radio 1 Breakfast show has lost over 200,000 listeners in recent months under Moyle's stewardship.
