Evans to replace Wogan on 2?

Chris Evans is set to take over the breakfast show on BBC Radio 2 when Sir Terry Wogan steps down next year, according to a report in the Mail on Sunday today.

A BBC source told the [link=http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-1211442/Good-Evans--Chris-set-Wogan-show.html]newspaper[/link] online: "Chris Evans will take over from Wogan by March at the latest, with Wogan moving to weekends, and Simon Mayo taking on Evans’s afternoon programme. The BBC was intending to announce this in December."

The BBC declined to comment.

Terry has been presenting the show on Radio 2 since 1993, and with almost eight million listeners tuning in each week, it's the biggest programme on UK radio.

Chris Evans, currently hosting the afternoon drive show on the station, previously presented breakfast on BBC Radio 1, and returned to national BBC Radio in 2005 as a weekend presenter on Radio 2.

He won the Music Radio Personality of the Year at the Sony Radio Academy Awards in 2006.
