BBC Radio 2 hires Michael Ball

Another non-radio presenter has been recruited by Lesley Douglas for a weekly show on Radio 2. Singer Michael Ball will take over Sunday mornings from Michael Parkinson.

Love Changes Everything star Michael says: "This is a wonderfully exciting new challenge in my career. I hope listeners will make a regular date to have lunch with me on Sundays."
BBC Radio 2 controller Douglas says: "Michael has proved to be an accomplished presenter on Radio 2 already. His warmth, obvious love of music and sense of humour make him perfect Sunday morning company."
It is not his first appearance on the network though, with a long-running series already under his belt called Ball Over Broadway which took him to New York to review shows and interview directors, stars and producers.
Michael has also presented one-off specials for the network including tributes to Jerry Herman and Anthony Newley. He has also been a guest presenter on Sunday mornings and Sunday evenings.
He will take over the Sunday morning 11am to 1pm show from the beginning of April.
