Kiss FM relaunch – Carl Cox returns

On Saturday 8th September at 0200am, Carl Cox makes a triumphant return to Kiss 100 FM, fresh from the success of the fifth Carl Cox Global season at Space, Ibiza and the news that the Carl Cox Global radio show’s audience figures have reached 2 million per weekend.

Emap Radio is calling on the help of DJ legend Carl Cox to help relaunch its dance station Kiss 100 FM and the rebranding of two of its local Vibe radio stations under the Kiss name (Vibe 101 in Bristol and Vibe FM in East Anglia). In a bid to inject a fresh sound and rebuild the Kiss brand, the London relaunch happens on September 6th with a new line-up of shows and DJs across the week.

Carl Cox will act as a figurehead for the major rejuvenation in September. On Carl’s return, Kiss MD Bill Griffin states; “We wanted to build on Kiss's incredible heritage”, and Andy Roberts, Group Programme Director of the expanded Kiss network, who is responsible for the new sound of the station, adds; "It's important that Kiss constantly evolves. I've already refreshed the music policy, providing a more optimistic and upbeat promise to the listener along with a new selection of presenters and specialist DJ's to come."
