Nick Grimshaw’s final Radio 1 show – special guests Harry Styles, Katy Perry and more to bid farewell after 14-year run
Radio jockey Nick Grimshaw is hosting his final show on BBC Radio 1 this week after 14 years at the station.
His last programme will be on Thursday from 2 pm until 5.45 pm and will be filled with Radio 1 memories and some very special goodbye messages.
Nick Grimshaw – or Grimmy as he’s known to his fans – first joined Radio 1 in 2007 and has hosted a variety of shows across the network including the infamous BBC Radio 1 Breakfast Show. In 2018 he took over Radio 1’s drivetime show.
Nick Grimshaw says: “My childhood dream was to work on Radio 1 and I have been lucky enough to make that dream come true. It has been everything I’d imagined and even more. I grew up wanting to connect with people and to feel accepted and the Radio 1 listeners gave me that and let me be part of their daily life, for which I will be eternally grateful.
“But over the last few months I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about my future and after 14 years, I’ve made the decision that it’s time for me to move on – I’d like to thank the listeners as without them none of this could have been possible and the Radio 1 family, who have been such a huge part of my life. Thank you thank you thank you.”
Aled Haydn Jones, Head of Radio 1, says: “Grimmy has given everything to Radio 1 over the past 14 years and he is loved by all of us who’ve had the pleasure to work with him.
“He helped to define Radio 1’s young audience, is always supremely entertaining on-air, and is an incredible radio talent. We wish him all the best but most of all – thank you!”
His star-studded lineup is set to include Harry Styles – who will ‘call in from LA’, Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom, Charli XCX and Matt Healy from The 1975.
Other famous names to take part in Nick’s last show on the airwaves include Alan Carr, Haim and Sara Cox.
