The much-loved radio and television presenter, Chris Evans makes his debut appearance today on Radio 2's Breakfast Show. Taking over from the legendary Sir Terry Wogan, Chris is joined by much-loved former BBC newsreader Moira Stewart. Together, they will no doubt make a formidable team.
Chris Evans, former winner of the Sony Music Radio Personality of the Year Award, has a 5 million following on Radio 2's Drivetime programme. He is being replaced on the Drivetime slot by Simon Mayo who has been the presenter of an award-winning talk show on Radio 5 Live. Simon Mayo has won numerous broadcasting awards including Radio Broadcaster of the Year at the 34th annual Broadcasting Press Guild Awards and the Speech Broadcaster of the Year at the Sony Radio Academy Awards.
It is believed that Richard Bacon will be replacing Simon Mayo on Simon's 5 Live talk show.
Chris Evans commented on Jonathan Ross's departure when appearing on the Andrew Marr Show at the weekend to promote his new show. Asked whether he would be interested in the Jonathan Ross's Friday night television slot, he said it would be preferable for a younger, edgier presenter such as Danny Wallace or Simon Amstell to be considered if the show is to continue in the same format.
