New 5 Live boss hires TV host

Adrian van Klaveren has began his role as controller of BBC Radio 5 Live today by signing Blue Peter presenter and Strictly Come Dancing star Gethin Jones.

The Gethin Jones show will begin on 5 July running for two months between 9am and midday.

The programme is likely to cover sport, music and culture throughout the summer, and reflect Gethin's own interests in entertainment and sport as a former Rugby player for Lancashire.

Adrian Van Klaveren said: "I'm really excited that Gethin is joining the 5 Live team. He'll be a fresh new voice to capture the spirit of summer and his show will fit in perfectly with the rest of our special programmes during July and August."

Gethin Jones said: "Joining Radio 5 live with my own show is fantastic and I can't wait to get started. I relish a challenge and my first venture into radio will be just that. I've always loved the station and look forward to bringing my own flavour to Saturday mornings."
