George Lamb moves to weekends

BBC 6 Music's morning show presenter George Lamb is changing his daily show for weekend breakfast.

In his place, Lauren Laverne will move from her Saturday afternoon show, starting November 30th.

George Lamb and his co-host Marc Hughes will take over the Weekend Breakfast show on 6 Music, Saturday and Sunday, 7.00-10.00am, from 5 December.

George says: "We've had an amazing time producing world class, genre-defining, groundbreaking, seminal, award-winning, mind-blowing radio, most weekdays, for the last two years, the fact that we've clashed with This Morning has always left a bitter sweet taste.

In addition, 5 Live weekday presenter Richard Bacon will front a new weekend show from Saturday 5th December from 3pm till 5pm.

Bob Shennan, Controller, Radio 2 and 6 Music, says: "Lauren is an outstanding talent and we're delighted she is going to be a pivotal voice on the network.

"George has done a brilliant job in daytime and I'm pleased he's agreed to transfer his amazing energy to weekends.

"And with Richard joining Saturday afternoons, it's a significant and exciting time in the development of 6."
