Simon Mayo confirms he has a new radio show

After his departure from BBC Radio 2, Simon Mayo has confirmed in a tweet that he’ll be announcing a new show in January.

Simon did his final Radio 2 Drivetime show with Jo Whiley yesterday. He’s been on the slot for the last 8 years, and has had a daily BBC network radio show for the last 31 years.

It was announced in October that he would be leaving Radio 2, though will continue to co-host 5 live’s Friday afternoon film review show with Mark Kermode.

Jo is moving back to evenings on Radio 2 as Sara Cox takes over the drivetime show from January.

Posting on Twitter, Mayo said: “An ex-Radio 2 host writes… So thank you all for all the wonderful comments here. Quite moved by it all. I’ve done a daily national BBC show for 31 years solid so this might take a while to adjust to…anyway the new radio show will be announced in January. It will be startling.”

A report in The Sun previously suggested he could be heading to Smooth Radio, though nothing has been confirmed by Global Radio. We’ll bring you the confirmed new when we get it in the New Year.
