Michael Ball, who has presented various programmes on the station over the years, will play classics each Sunday at 7pm.

He was hired in 2008 by Lesley Douglas to host Sunday mornings and used to present a long-running series called Ball Over Broadway which took him to New York to review shows and interview directors, stars and producers.

Also, the Sunday morning faith zone will start at 6am with an extended “Sunday Hour” followed by Good Morning Sunday with new host Clare Balding from 7am till 9am, replacing Aled Jones.

All changes take place from January 20th.

Bob Shennan, Controller of BBC Radio 2, 6 Music and Asian Network, said: “Michael has the capacity to span a broad musical repertoire from classic light music to the greats from the American Songbook. Michael is a familiar and well-loved voice to the Radio 2 audience and, between him, Diane Louise Jordan and Clare Balding, the day will begin and end with some wonderful weekend treats.”

Michael said: “I am so delighted to be back on Radio 2 with a brand new show. I want to share with listeners my love of music regardless of its age, genre and style. I just want it to be entertaining.”
