Ken Bruce hosts new TV game show as he makes an epic comeback after BBC Radio 2 ax
KEN Bruce is set to host a brand new TV game show as he makes an epic comeback following his BBC Radio 2 axe.
The broadcaster and DJ, 72, left the BBC in a shock move after 45 years.
He left his fans and listeners devastated when he recently wrapped up his last show.
But Ken doesn’t go far – he’s landed a brand new show with Channel 4 that will see his iconic PopMaster quiz return.
The station has announced that it will present the six-part series for its sister station More4.
In the trivia quiz, two participants ask a series of 10 questions based on popular music from the 1950s to the present day.
After both players have answered 10 questions, the winner plays Three-in-Ten, in which they have ten seconds to name three UK Singles Chart hits for a specific artist or group.
A variety of questions are asked ranging from different music genres when players are asked to name the artist or even the year the song was released.
The winner of each episode competes in a grand finale to crown the overall winner.
Channel 4 has said the beloved format will remain the same but there will be “a few surprises”.
Speaking of the show, Ken said: “After all these years, we’re finally bringing PopMaster to TV, where we’re going to challenge music lovers from across the country to remember not just a bunch of facts and stats about chart-topping and beyond for decades, but under the.” the glare of the studio lights and with the added pressure of the television cameras.
“I can’t wait to get started – and see if I might have a TV face after all!”
Ken is still broadcasting on the radio and recently launched his brand new show on Greatest Hits Radio.
