5 Live’s weekend overnight presenter Dotun Adebayo is moving to weekday overnights from April.
The move follows Rhod Sharpe’s announcement last year, that he was standing down from the slot.
Dotun says: “Wow, what an honour it is to be given the privilege of hosting this amazing station five nights a week. It will be worth staying up for… I promise.”
Heidi Dawson, Controller of BBC Radio 5 live, says: “Dotun is well known to our listeners who love his warmth, humour and intelligence.
“He is an outstanding broadcaster with a passion for late night radio and just how important radio is to listeners at that time of night. There is no one better to succeed Rhod Sharp.”
Dotun will continue to present his Sunday evening discussion show on BBC Radio London from 8-10pm. His new BBC Radio 5 Live show will air 1am – 5am Monday to Friday from 6 April.
