Changes for BBC Radio 5 live daytime schedule
Mid-morning presenter Emma Barnett is going four days a week on 5 live, as Adrian Chiles moves to Friday only.
The Emma Barnett Show will air Monday to Thursday 10am till 1am (instead of Wednesday to Friday), with Chiles on Friday making up the 5th day.
In addition, Adrian Chiles is taking over Question Time Extra Time on a Thursday night, replacing Stephen Nolan who is thought to be starting a new politics podcast whilst continuing his weekend shows.
Emma tweeted the news, saying the new show starts on January 8th and will have more sparky interviews with nuns, politicians, and sheep.
