Radio station hires djs isn't, perhaps, the most surprising headline, but Kiss' hiring of Carl Cox and Armin Van Buren is significant: a fairly hefty declaration of intent from EMAP that it intends to try and win respect back for the network.

On the other hand:

Kiss is also placing greater emphasis on listener interaction - with parts of the schedule opened up to allow listeners to shape playlists by rating tracks and choosing what is played next via real-time voting on the Kiss website.

So, junior choice with a few premium-rate phoneline knobs on, then.
