The Belfast broadcaster will host the More Music Weekend Breakfast show from 7am to 10am.
Stephen said: "I have always had a genuine passion for music and I'm delighted to be bringing this passion to U105.
"The genres of music played on U105 are right up my street and I'll be playing the biggest chart hits from over the years to help listeners ease into that weekend feeling.
"You'll also find some of the songs I'm going to play on the show on my iPod, so should watch out for old time favourites like The Eagles and T-Rex."
Maurice Jay, Programme Director at U105, added: "Stephen has over 25 years of radio experience and is well known to the Belfast audience and is a very welcome addition to the U105 team. He is a superb broadcaster and I know Stephen's fantastic taste in music will be a huge hit with our weekend audience and ensure everyone starts the weekend off in style.
"U105 now has the highest average listening hours of any radio station in our broadcast area with 195,000 people now tuning in for almost 2 million hours every week giving the station a market share of 12.5%. Stephen will be a great addition to our already stellar line-up on the station.
The U105 More Music Weekend Breakfast show with Stephen Woods airs every Saturday and Sunday from 7am to 10am starting from 5 April.
