Clive Anderson is to replace the late Ned Sherrin on the BBC Radio 4 show Loose Ends.
Anderson had been sharing presentation duties with comedians Peter Curran and Patrick Kielty since Sherrin fell ill in 2006.
Sherrin - who was the host of Loose Ends for 20 year - died of throat cancer last October.
Anderson will also continue to present his Radio 2 comedy talkshow Clive Anderson's Chat Room.
Loose Ends, which brings together interviews, comedy and music, is broadcast on Saturday evenings.
