Nick to replace Colin on Radio 1

After ten years at BBC Radio 1, Colin Murray is leaving to join 5 Live full time. His nightly 10pm till midnight slot will be filled by weekend presenter Nick Grimshaw.

Colin is no stranger to 5 Live as he hosts the weekly Fighting Talk show during the football season. His new job will include a Friday night and Sunday afternoon show. He said: "I'm honoured to be given these new shows on Radio 5 Live. With it comes a responsibility to deliver the best sporting radio content anywhere in the world, and I intend to give 100 percent while introducing my own style of presentation."

Nick, who started his radio career just a few years ago working as part of the promo team at Smooth (FM) in Manchester, will move to the new Monday to Thursday, 10pm-midnight slot from the weekend breakfast show but will continue to co-host Switch with Annie Mac on Sunday nights.

Ben Cooper, Head of Programmes, Radio 1, says: "It will be fantastic to get Nick's mix of humour, music and guests on four nights a week. I look forward to it soon becoming the 'must listen to' show for our young audiences."

Nick Grimshaw adds: "I'm so excited to be taking on a whole new challenge. Doing an evening show for Radio 1 is something I've always dreamed of and I can't wait to start."
