JACK takes drivetime show across network

JACK Media, the independent commercial radio group, is expanding its popular Union JACK radio drivetime show, hosted by Adam English, across its entire network from Monday 6 September.

The expansion across the network signifies the first dedicated drivetime show for 106 JACKfm, JACK 2 Hits and JACK3 Chill – and will be broadcast locally from Eynsham.

The listening experience will continue to be bespoke across JACK Media’s six stations, which also includes Union JACK Rock and Union JACK Dance and collectively reaches 424k listeners every week, with music during the drivetime show individually tailored specifically for each of the six stations.

Adam English was winner of the Student Radio Award’s ‘Best Male’ title in 2018, and has since been supported by JACK Media. In 2019, he became the youngest breakfast presenter on national radio when he took on the breakfast show for the group’s flagship national station, Union JACK Radio. He has since moved to the popular drivetime slot, where he has been entertaining listeners nationwide with his witty and comedic presenting style.

Adam English, presenter of JACK Media’s drivetime show, said: “Presenting breakfast, and now drive, on Union JACK radio has been a total dream. With the incredible engagement and humour of the listeners, we’ve created a truly special daily three hours of escapism full of laughter, absurdity and non-apologetic silliness. I’m so thrilled we’re now able to extend the drivetime show across both Union JACK Dance and Rock’s incredible playlists, as well as the local JACK brands in Oxfordshire; a place I’ve lived in and loved for more than three years.”

Dick Stone, Group Content Manager at JACK Media National, said: “Adam has built up a loyal and engaged audience on Union JACK radio and we have no doubt that by taking the drivetime show across all six of our radio stations, this audience will continue to grow. JACK Media is now delivering a credible mix of personality-led shows, distinctive programming and bespoke music outputs that are reaching a mass audience nationwide and across its portfolio.”

Adam English can be heard every weekday from 4pm across the JACK Media network. To find out how to listen, visit JACK.radio.
