The Next Generation - FM Radio's Top 20 hot new talent

A few weeks ago I listed my Top 30 FM Stars of All Time. We received loads of comments and suggestions, many of them publishable!

And now, as promised, here is my Top 20 list of Hot New Talent. These are the outstanding up and coming talent – the superstars of the future.

They include regional and metro on air talent - plus a few names which haven't found a home on FM radio just yet.

Great talent can come from anywhere, so regardless of whether theyʼre already high profile, or whether you havenʼt yet heard of them … keep a close eye on these names – theyʼre the ones to watch out for.

Here they are in alphabetical order…
