Date set for Paul Gambaccini's radio return
The BBC today confirmed that Paul Gambaccini will be resuming his presenting duties on BBC Radio next month.
Gambo will return to his usual BBC Radio 2 show – presenting America’s Greatest Hits – from Saturday November 15 and his role presenting Counterpoint on BBC Radio 4, covering the semi-finals and the final of this year’s competition, to be broadcast from Monday 24 November.
He has been off the air for over a year, following his arrest for alleged historic sex crimes. His regular Saturday night show was pulled at the last minute at his request after he was arrested by officers investigating Operation Yewtree.
The former BBC Radio 1 presenter and host of the Sonys was told just last week that he would face no further action.
