BBC Radio 5 Live is to reunite popular presenting duo Jane Garvey and Peter Allen for a new Sunday evening show as part of a revamp of the station's line-up.
Jane and Peter will reunite for a new Sunday evening show, starting this autumn, taking a wry and witty look at the week’s news.
The pair became one of the most popular double-acts on UK radio when they fronted 5 live Breakfast and 5 live Drive together for 13 years.
Peter, who has been with 5 live since the station started in 1994, currently presents 5 live Daily three days a week and has now chosen to step back from that role.
As well as the new Sunday programme, Peter will continue to present special projects on 5 live, and be an important voice on the station. Jane continues to present Woman’s Hour on BBC Radio 4.
In addition to this new show, 5 live welcomes two exciting new stars to its daytime line-up. Broadcaster and journalist Emma Barnett will present 5 live Daily three days a week from September. She’ll host the programme on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. Adrian Chiles will continue on Mondays and Tuesdays.
