Claudia already hosts a show about the arts, including film, on Radio 2. The Arts Show goes out from 10pm to midnight on Fridays, and includes a broad sweep of art forms while easy-going music relates to the items up for discussion.
Claudia Winkleman will not be the first female presenter of the long-running show: Joan Bakewell was among a roster of hosts, including Frederic Raphael, Iain Johnstone and Barry Norman, who alternated when the programme began in November 1971. The following year, Barry Norman took sole charge, and remained on board until 1998, when he was replaced by Ross.
Claudia is a fantastic awards host, presenter and facilitator for any event and brings a bit of pizzazz to make that event special.
