In what has come as a surprise to many Zane Lowe has announced that he is leaving BBC Radio 1 to go and start a new adventure in the US working at Apple. Zane has worked for the BBC for over 10 years so his leaving is actually quite monumental. Speaking about his departure the DJ had this to say “I want to thank everyone at Radio 1 for their support and friendship…..The station has allowed me to share incredible music with the country’s best music fans. I’ve loved every minute of it.”. Annie Mac will take over his Monday – Thursday 7pm-9pm slot from March 9th, this means that she will now vacate her current Sunday evening slot. Apple have done well to secure the services of Lowe and will benefit from his vast musical knowledge and general love and enthusiasm for music that spans across many genres.
