Fly FM’s Pete Allison has been given a weekend slot on the national radio station The Hits Radio. His new show will go out on Sunday nights from 10pm till 1am, and Pete will also have the opportunity to cover other shows on the station.

Currently studying broadcast journalism at Nottingham Trent University, Pete has also found out this week that he was nominated for Best Male and Best Entertainment Show for the Student Radio Awards, organised by the Student Radio Association (SRA). The awards this year, which are being held at London’s Indig02 on the 9th November, showcase the best in new talent from student radio stations across the country.

This isn’t the first time that Pete has been involved with The Hite Radio, as he previously came second in ‘The Hits Radio’s Future Stars’ competition, in which he won the opportunity to work with the Bauer station.

Pete said: “I’m extremely excited about joining The Hits Radio. It’s been a real honor to have been involved with the station at different points over the past few months and I’m very pleased to have the opportunity to now join the weekend schedule.

“It’s been a special week as I’ve also had the news about the nominations for the Student Radio Awards – I can’t wait to get started!”

Paul Fernley, The Hits Radio’s programmes manager added: “We’ve always been committed to giving new talent the chance to grow and develop at The Hits Radio. Pete’s warmth, charm and ability made us realise that we would be stupid not to sign him up full time. With this coming just after his second consecutive Student Radio Award Awards nomination, it looks like he’s got a bright future ahead of him.”

Fred Bradley, Chair of the Student Radio Association said: “The SRA are so pleased that The Hits Radio, a constant supporter of student radio has given Pete this opportunity. This should be a confidence boost for all other award nominees who now have their chance to get noticed. Paul Fernley at Bauer has always been a keen advocate of student radio and we thank him for his continued support. Many congratulations to Pete, and best of luck in the Student Radio Awards on the 9th November! “
