Evan Davis is joining BBC Radio 4's Today programme as a presenter. The BBC Economics Editor will replace Carolyn Quinn who is leaving to concentrate on her other BBC projects.
Evan said: "It's perhaps a bit annoying to take a break from my current job just at the very time the economy seems to be getting interesting. But Today is a radio institution and I'd obviously be mad to turn down a chance to present it."
He added: "I tried it for two weeks over the summer, and found that if you can mentally re-classify the early mornings as late nights, they really don't seem so bad."
