Alice Levine leaves Radio 1 after nine years at the station


Alice Levine has left Radio 1 after nine years of appearing on the station.

In an Instagram post last month, Levine said it was “time for me to hang up the headphones” as she said goodbye to Radio 1.

She was initially given a new music show in the John Peel slot in 2013 working alongside Phil Taggart four nights a week, before going solo on weekend afternoons, and then moving to weekend breakfast with Dev.

Most recently she has hosted weekend afternoons on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

She wrote on Instagram: “It‘s 9 years since I first walked around the old studios at Yalding House and signed up to start piloting for a show.

“So many big moments have happened since then and I have met friends for life.

“The team at R1 are the funniest, smartest and most-hardworking. I can’t believe I got to be in the gang for a bit.”

The presenter is expected to take on further radio commitments in the future, after she wrote: “Just to say you can no longer reach me on 81199, new number to follow”.

Radio 1 boss Aled Haydn Jones told “Alice has been a key part of the Radio 1 family for several years and has fronted some incredible radio moments throughout her time here. We’ll all miss her humour, warmth and enthusiasm, and we wish her all the very best for the future.”
