Cerys Matthews returns to 6

Singer/songwriter Cerys Matthews is to host her own weekend show on BBC 6 Music from Easter Sunday replacing Jon Richardson.

It follows her covering the weekday afternoon show for Nemone last year, in which she built up quite a a large following of fans.

Cerys: "I had a great time with the audience every afternoon on 6 Music; I'm now excited to be slipping into my brand-new Sunday morning slot, bringing my own particular choice of tasty tunes from the right side of rock 'n' roll. There'll be more live music, virtual radio road trips, guests, requests, texts, twitters and purely great music from the past, present and beyond."

Bob Shennan, Controller, Radio 2 and 6 Music, comments: "Cerys proved to be a natural broadcaster during her tenure on 6 Music last year, and I'm delighted to welcome her to a permanent home on the network."

Jon Richardson leaves after three-and-a-half years to commit fully to his career as a stand-up comedian.

On announcing his departure to his listeners Jon said: "The time has come to move on. It's time to do some other things and let someone else know what it is to spend Sunday mornings with you."
