GRAHAM NORTON announces he is quitting BBC Radio 2 after 10 years confirming that his last programme will air on Saturday December 19, 2020.
Discussing his shock exit from the radio station, where he hosts a slot between 10am and 1pm on Saturdays after taking over from Jonathan Ross in 2010, the chat show host shared:
“Obviously I’m sad to be stepping away from my Radio 2 show. I’ll miss being a part of the Wogan House family, as well as the listeners and their lives.
“I’d like to thank my producer Malcolm Prince and all the teams I’ve worked with for a great decade of radio.”
The 57-year-old was quick to reassure fans that he will continue his work with BBC TV, adding: “Happily with the chat show, Eurovision and Drag Race, the BBC continues to be my perfect TV home.”
The BBC’s Chief Content Officer Charlotte Moore said: “Graham Norton will be hugely missed on Saturday mornings on Radio 2, he is a first class broadcaster but I’m thrilled he’s committed to continuing to be a regular fixture on the BBC as the host of his hugely popular and award-winning The Graham Norton Show, the BBC’s coverage of Eurovision and Drag Race UK.”
