John Humphrys joins Classic FM as guest presenter of breakfast show

John Humphrys, one of Britain’s best-known and most distinguished broadcasters, is joining Classic FM as guest presenter next week.

The former Radio 4 presenter, who recently left the BBC after more than 30 years, will host Classic FM’s More Music Breakfast from Monday 28 October to Friday 1 November inclusive from 6am to 9am, as he stands in for regular presenter Tim Lihoreau.

As part of Classic FM’s presenting team, he will join a host of other renowned broadcasters including Moira Stuart, who presents the breakfast news bulletins, John Suchet, Bill Turnbull, Myleene Klass, Alan Titchmarsh, Alexander Armstrong and Charlotte Hawkins.

John Humphrys said: “I’m struggling to think of a greater contrast with my old job: the bliss of Beethoven and Brahms instead of Brexit and backstops! Maybe there really is another world out there!”

John said goodbye to his Radio 4 listeners when he signed off last month.
