Starting this October, idol group SKE48 will finally have their own regular TV show on NTV after AKB48 and NMB48.
The new late-night show is called “SKE48 no Magical Radio” and will further strengthen NTV’s position as being the best place for idol shows. After all, they’re already hosting two regular AKB48 shows, “Naruhodo! High School” and “AKBINGO“, as well as one regular NMB48 show called “Naniwa Nadeshiko“. It was only a matter of time for SKE48 to join this line-up.
The three members Matsui Jurina, Matsui Rena, and Takayanagi Akane will serve as the main characters of “SKE48 no Magical Radio”. Moreover it’s said that the vibe of the show is going to feel like variety show disguised as a drama.
Takayanagi is going to mime the radio host of a third grade radio show of a fictional radio station in Nagoya who suddenly gets forced to co-host the show together with former child actress Matsui Jurina in order to attract more listeners. Matsui Rena is going to act as the director who loves radio more than anything else.
