Romesh Ranganathan to Launch New Saturday Morning BBC Radio 2 Show
Comedian, author and actor Romesh Ranganathan, who currently presents For the Love of Hip Hop for Radio 2 and BBC Sounds, will be taking over from Claudia Winkleman in the coveted Saturday 10:00 am to 1:00 pm slot. Romesh will launch the new show in April 2024.
Romesh will continue to host For the Love of Hip Hop, which he launched in 2021, produced by Folded Wing, for Radio 2 and BBC Sounds.
Romesh says: ‘In my many years working as a maths teacher thinking “what would happen if I gave this up”, I never imagined I’d be sandwiched between Dermot O’Leary and Steve Wright on the UK’s most popular radio station every Saturday morning. I’m grateful to Claud for wanting to spend her more time with her kids, and enabling me to spend less time with mine, and I look forward to finding out what the nation is up to at that time, as well as speaking to some familiar faces. It’s going to be fun. Probably.’
