Liza Tarbuck gets Radio 2 Saturday nights

Radio 2 stand-in presenter Liza Tarbuck is getting her first regular show on the station, taking over Saturday evenings from Alan Carr and Melanie Sykes.

She’ll start in the 6-8pm slot from 12th May.

Liza has been doing regular cover work for Radio 2, most recently depping for Simon Mayo on drivetime. She previously teamed up with Mark Radcliffe to cover Steve Wright’s afternoon show. She has also had a couple of spells hosting the Saturday midmorning slot on the station – with Huey Morgan and Martin Freeman. The daughter of comedian Jimmy Tarbuck, she got her big media break as co-host of The Big Breakfast on Channel 4 alongside former Capital FM breakfast presenter Johnny Vaughan.

Liza said: “It’s great news to finally be hosting my own show. I’m a big fan of Radio 2 and I’m very happy to be the bridge into everyone’s Saturday night. The listeners are too busy to come round to mine, so I’ll just have to turn up at theirs. If they’ll let me in, I’ll bring a cake.”

Lewis Carnie, Head of Programming, BBC Radio 2 said: “Liza is an established and experienced broadcaster who is already loved by the Radio 2 audience. I’m very much looking forward to welcoming her to the station in May.”

Earlier this week, Alan Carr announced he was leaving the station after three years.
