Robin Galloway is returning to his old breakfast show on Scotland’s regional FM radio station, replacing Ewen Cameron.

Ewen Cameron took over the show from Robin in 2011 after Robin and his former producer Barrie left following a practical joke which went wrong. Robin challenged Barrie to streak past a studio window where then-Labour leader Ed Miliband was being interviewed.

Robin has most recently been presenting the networked breakfast show across Bauer’s Greatest Hits Network on AM, and before that was on drive at Clyde 1. He was still on-air this morning with Bauer and his moving date is unknown at this point.

Ewen’s co-presenter Cat Harvey is still listed on the Heart Scotland website but Ewen has been removed, suggesting Robin will be re-united with Cat.

Robin’s return to the station isn’t the first time he’s made a comeback. He originally joined the frequency in 1995 when it was Scot FM, but left in 1997. He returned in 2000 and stayed until owners GMG Radio let him go.

Richard Park, group executive director & director of broadcasting at Global told RadioToday: “Robin is one of the top broadcasters in the country. I’m confident he will be very popular with Heart listeners right across Scotland and we’re delighted to have him on board.”

A Heart Scotland spokesperson added: “Ewen Cameron will be leaving Scotland’s Heart Breakfast to pursue other opportunities.”

We’ve asked Bauer for more details on Robin’s replacement on the Greatest Hits Network and will update this story soon.

Does anyone know if his pockets have been lined with gold or if his wind ups are coming to come back?

Unless Heart has given him gold bars I cant see why he would not join a this crap boat.

This is a huge deal for Global and I'd guess they've got the cheque book out. I wonder if bauer put up a fight and tried to keep him.

I listen to Robin on Clyde 2 on DAB and his show is decent, in the main due to the good variety of music he plays. Will be a sad loss for Clyde2.

Could Ewen replace Robin?

Why did Ewen leave?

I'd take a guess that Robin became availible so Ewan was paid off.

I'd take a punt on John Leslie being a front runner for the gig.

Doesn't surprise me, once Robin lost his Sunday gig (Galloway Sunday) it was only going to be a matter of time before he jumped ship, due to Bauer's insane decision to network Paddy's Sunday Dinner on the Scottish FM stations.

Bob Malcolm would be back on his old slot, though to a much wider audience than he was originally. If he becomes the new GHN breakfast host.

I might be bias being from Glasgow, but I maintain Riddy would be good at breakfast again. That said I like what I've heard of Bob Malcolm. Someone like Dougie Jackson would be a good choice also. I think John Leslie is the likely candidate like someone else mentioned though.

But Paddy McGuinness is not on Westsound FM as it's not a Your Music Your Life station.

He would still be switching even if a network show from Inverness with a Highland based DJ had replaced his Sunday 9 to 12 show.

He is moving to a station that has far more English based networking than there is at the Bauer Scottish stations as things stand right now

A larger audience and doubtless more money, not really a hard choice to make I'd have thought.

His pockets are full of gold, BUT could robin have placed certain conditions to jump ship?

Well, if you look at it from another way, the likes of heart don't encourage creativity. It is essentially dull jukebox output.

I would have thought he would have more opportunity to use his personality where he is at the moment.

And given the fact that what he is currently doing is a Scotland wide show, would there be much difference on the money side? I doubt it very much.
