The listeners/ratings will decide his comeback.

It's an odd fit. Everything that made his show work was the type of content that fits a rock station.

Will be interesting to see how much music they play; Energy P1s aren't likely to know, or at least care, who his is, while his former P1s aren't going to sit through a bunch of Harry Styles and Ariana Grande to hear a watered-down version of the show.

If they're just putting him in there as a versatile, talented broadcaster, then fine....but realistically they're starting from scratch, not moving or combining audiences.
