There’ll also be guests from the worlds of comedy and film as well as the biggest tunes and new music around.

Smart will continue to present Smart on Sunday (Sundays 2-5pm), broadcasting six days a week on Radio X. 

Smart joined Global - the media and entertainment group which is home to Radio X - in 2011, presenting a weekly show on XFM before taking a break from radio in 2013 to edit The Scottish Sun. 

He returned to Radio X to host his weekly Sunday afternoon show Smart on Sunday in April 2016. 

Gordon says: “I'm absolutely delighted about stepping into the evening slot on Radio X. I love the station and dreamed of doing a show more regularly.  

"The stable of talent on air, producing the shows and behind the scenes is exceptional. I love the music on Radio X, thrive on big interviews and thoroughly enjoy the company of the loyal listeners. I can't wait to get stuck in to the next adventure with the good people at Global. Here we go!"
