Evan Davis named as new Radio 4 PM presenter

Newsnight and Dragon’s Den presenter Evan Davis is returning to BBC Radio 4 full time to host PM.

The former Today host says in a tweet “So.. guess what. Having survived several years of people saying “you’re not as good as Jeremy Paxman”, I now look forward to people saying “you’re not as good as Eddie Mair”. I’ll be moving to @BBCpm at the end of October.”

He added: “have to say, that I will genuinely miss the daytime office conversations with the @BBCNewsnight team. Audiences perhaps don’t realise how much the output depends on the vitality and intelligence of some underpaid staff.”

Evan left Radio 4 in 2014 where he hosted the Today Programme, to replace Jeremy Paxman on Newsnight.
