Ashley Tabor, founder of Radio X owner Global, said: 

"Chris is a broadcasting genius and as Global makes a multi-million pound investment in launching Radio X on a national scale, I couldn't think of anyone better to host the station's breakfast show. Along with Vernon Kay, Johnny Vaughan and Ricky Wilson, the UK has never had a radio station like Radio X before."

Ford Ennals, CEO, Digital Radio UK, said:

“Today is a big day for radio. Chris Moyles making his return to radio on the new national digital station Radio X is hugely exciting news for listeners and digital radio. The new all-star line-up of Chris at breakfast, Vernon Kay for mid-mornings, Johnny Vaughan at drive and Ricky Wilson at weekends will ensure that Radio X is unmissable, and the only way to listen to Chris and the other great personalities on Radio X across the UK is on digital radio.”
