They’re changing the Radio 1 schedules and Colin and Edith are going solo! It’s the end of an era, I tell you (don’t forget they were both hosts of Ri:SE when that started…). Says Colin about his move to the 10pm slot
“The only downside will be my partnership with Edith coming to an end but our friendship comes first and Edith knows that I belong in the darkness, and wishes me well.
”I am sure we’ll be thrown together for every big Radio 1 event in the future. I’m just glad we didn’t reach the stage where we had to work out custody of the kids.“
I’m Rob Buckley, a journalist who writes for UK media magazines that most people have never heard of although you might have heard me on the podcast Lockdown Land or Radio 5 Live’s Saturday Edition or Afternoon Edition. I’ve edited Dreamwatch, Sprocket and Cambridge Film Festival Daily; been technical editor for TV producers magazine Televisual; reviewed films for the short-lived newspaper Cambridge Insider; written features for the even shorter-lived newspaper Soho Independent; and was regularly sarcastic about television on the blink-and-you-missed-it “web site for urban hedonists” The Tribe. Since going freelance, I've contributed to the likes of Broadcast, Total Content + Media, Action TV, Off The Telly, Action Network, TV Scoop and The Custard TV.
