Lauren Laverne is to replace Shaun Keaveny on BBC 6 Music’s breakfast show, it has been announced.
The presenter, formerly a singer in the Britpop band Kenickie, will make the move in January 2019, the station said.
“Some news guys, breakfast means breakfast,” said Laverne in a tweet announcing the shake-up.
Keaveny and his co-presenter Matt EVeritt will move to the afternoon, taking the slot currently occupied by Mark Radcliffe and Stuart Maconie.
In turn, they will move to weekend breakfast, while Mary Anne Hobbs gets promoted to weekday mid-mornings.
