Forbes moves to Capital

Capital Radio has scored a coup over rival London station Heart FM by poaching its top DJ Emma Forbes from the Chrysalis-owned station to front its weekend morning show.

The move comes at a crucial time in Capital's fight to regain lost ground in the competitive London market, following speculation over the future of its top presenter Chris Tarrant.

Forbes has co-presented Heart's breakfast show for the past year with Jono Coleman, during which time Capital's breakfast show has suffered a significant decline in listeners. In contrast, Coleman and Forbes' show grew its audience by 11% over the year.
