On Friday, May 11 2018, Sun FM partied with 350 listeners and invited guests as Simon Grundy celebrated 2 decades of waking the City of Sunderland up every morning.
‘Simon & Danni in the Morning’ is the No.1 commercial Breakfast Show across Wearside, reaching more listeners and beating every other commercial station that broadcasts to Sunderland.
Though times have changed since the show launched, the No.1 song of that year was Celine Dion’s ‘My Heart Will Go On’ from the ‘Titanic’ soundtrack- and as other breakfast shows have sunk into the past, this one is still going from strength to strength.
Simon Grundy, Content Director & Breakfast Presenter at Sun FM, said: ‘I’m very proud of being at the helm of the heritage breakfast show in the North East, and also being involved in raising so much money for charity and numerous Christmas Toy & Easter Egg Appeals – thank you to everybody who still listens, and to those who don’t, tune in everyday and try to win £1,000 like Julie from Hetton did just the other week.”
Julian Carter, Managing Director of Sun FM: “Being the No.1 most listened to commercial radio station, and having the No.1 commercial breakfast show is a remarkable achievement for a proper local radio station in a very busy area with so many radio stations to choose from. Our listeners and clients love Sunderland and Sun FM.”
