Pirate FM has announced Johnny Cowling will be joining the station to present our Hometime show.

The Cornish comedian will link up with Holly Day on the 2pm-7pm slot from the end of the month.

The star has entertained thousands of people at hundreds of gigs across the Duchy - and thousands more as the warm-up act for shows like Strictly Come Dancing, Take Me Out and Celebrity Juice.

Johnny said: "This is something new for me - but it's down here in my beautiful Cornwall and I can't wait."

Having worked with the likes of Ben Elton, Johnny Vegas and Paddy McGuinness, This Morning presenter Fern Britton asked him to appear at her fiftieth birthday party. She called him: "One of our great undiscovered comedy talents. He gave us an hour of pure genius.

"He was brilliant - a true entertainer, who could make anybody laugh.”

Johnny grew up in Cornwall: "Born and bred. I went to St Merryn County Primary School and then Wadebridge Comprehensive. And then St Austell Sixth Form College, but that was more snooker than college really. I wasn't really cut out for the old academics."

From September 28th the man known as "Cornwall's greatest comedy export" joins Holly Day on Pirate FM, who has met thousands of workers at hundreds of businesses, handing out cakes across the Duchy.

Pirate FM's Breakfast Show presenter and Program Controller Neil Caddy said: "It's really exciting. The exciting thing about Johnny Cowling is that he is Mr Cornwall.

"Of course Holly Day is really well known in this part of the world.

"It is really underlines what we are in terms of being a local radio station and, with that show let's be honest - you're never going to know what's going to happen next."

The pair will present a new show - with more details due to be released soon.
