The Exodus Continues
Jane Garvey and Fi Glover quit BBC for Times Radio
A New Radio and Podcast Deal
Broadcasters Jane Garvey and Fi Glover are joining Times Radio in an exclusive deal which includes a brand-new podcast. The pair are two of Britain’s most admired broadcasters and will present a new live daily afternoon show together on Times Radio. They have spent their careers at the BBC, and together have hosted the hit BBC podcast Fortunately since 2017, but this will be the first time they will broadcast a live news programme together.
Jane co-presented first Breakfast and then Drive on BBC Radio 5 Live and was the first voice when the station launched in 1994, before moving to BBC Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour.
Fi hosted the late-night programme on BBC Radio 5 Live for three years before moving to Radio 4. The duo hit the top of the charts with their BBC podcast Fortunately, where they chat about life and talk to broadcasters and personalities. It has had over 30 million downloads and was in the BBC’s top three podcasts of 2021. The podcast is due to run until the end of the year.
Jane and Fi start on Times Radio on Monday 10 October, co-presenting a new live programme from 3-5 pm, Monday to Thursday, covering the day’s news as well as their reflections on the day. Read the full story in the national press and at the URL, below:
