Marvin Humes and Kat Shoob are stepping down from hosting the Big Top 40 chart show at Global.
Kat has been on the show for almost a decade whilst Marvin joined the countdown to replace Rich Clarke in 2014.

Kat is also stepping down from her nightly show on Heart, but will continue to be part of the Global family, whilst Marvin will continue his weeknight show on Capital, Monday to Thursday from 10pm.
A Global Spokesperson told RadioToday: “We are delighted that Marvin remains part of the Global family and can still be heard on Capital Monday-Thursday. Similarly, whilst we’re losing Kat from our chart, this isn’t goodbye, as she will continue to ‘pop-up’, from time to time, on Heart. It goes without saying that we’d like to thank Marvin and Kat for their enormous contribution to The Official Vodafone Big Top 40, the UK’s biggest chart show.”
RadioToday understands a new presenter will be announced next week.

I’ve had the most amazing 5 years hosting the UK’s biggest chart show but it’s time for me to call it a day! As you know family is everything to me and with a very busy year ahead with me djing all over the world plus Roch and I launching our brand new TV show ‘Hitlist’ I want to commit my Sundays to family. I want to thank the whole @global team and my incredible co-host @katshoob! Of course I’m still part of the Global family hosting my Capital show Monday – Thursday. Thanks for the best ride @bigtop40 I’ve loved every minute 🙌🏾
