Graham Norton is to replace Jonathan Ross as the host of BBC Radio 2′s Saturday morning show.
His programme will begin on October 2 and will run from 10am to 1pm, featuring live musical performances, celebrity guests and chat with both guests and listeners.
BBC Radio 2 controller Bob Shennan said: “Graham is one of the nation’s favourite entertainment presenters and I’m hugely excited to welcome him to his new permanent home on Radio 2.”
Ross will step down from the slot in July 2010, having presented his programme since 1999.
Norton joins Terry Wogan, Jeremy Vine, Chris Evans, Paul O’Grady and Johnnie Walker as one of Radio 2′s presenters.
