Laverne to replace Keaveny on 6 Music Breakfast
Big changes at 6 Music have been announced to staff this morning, with Lauren Laverne set to take over the breakfast show from Shaun Keaveny.
The former Radio 1 and Xfm presenter has been hosting mid-mornings since 2009 and will move shows early in the new year.
Shaun Keaveny joined BBC Radio 6 Music in 2007 and presented the late evening show for a few months before starting Breakfast on 2 April 2007. He’ll move to weekday afternoons, accompanied by Music News presenter Matt Everitt.
In other changes, Mary Anne Hobbs moves from the weekend breakfast show to weekday mid-mornings and Mark Radcliffe and Stuart Maconie will be at the helm of a brand new Weekend Breakfast Show, moving from weekday afternoons.
There are a number of other schedule changes too. More details coming soon – Hit refresh in a few minutes.
