Fi Glover leaves Saturday Live

Fi Glover is to present her last edition of Radio 4's Saturday Live this weekend, with regular deputy Rev Richard Coles taking over.

Fi has been with the magazine show since it started five years ago as a replacement for John Peel's Home Truths programme.

Fi says: "Saturday Live has been the most fabulous show to work on. The team is one of the most talented in radio and the audience is a joy to broadcast to – we have had a lot of fun over the last four and a half years and I shall miss them all. But I'm now looking forward to spending more time with my family at the weekend. And Saturday Live is a fine ship in full sail right now – I shall enjoy listening to Richard at the helm!"

Fi started out in BBC local radio before seven years at 5 Live. She joined Radio 4 to present Broadcasting House from 2004 and then Saturday Live from 2006, for which she won Best Speech Programme at the Sonys in 2008.

Gwyneth Williams, Controller, Radio 4 says: "Fi has made Saturday Live her own and her regular presence on Saturday morning will be sorely missed. She brings a cool head, wit and intelligence to the airwaves. I can say, however, that she will still be a presence on Radio 4 and listeners can look forward to hearing her voice elsewhere on the network in the near future.
