Jane Garvey has announced she will be stepping down as the presenter of Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour at the end of 2020. 

She has been with the show since 2007, and no one has been named as a replacement for the long-standing host. 

Garvey revealed she will be hosting her own interview series on BBC Radio 4 next year, following her stint on Woman’s Hour. 

She said in a statement: “It’s been a real privilege to play a small part in the history of this very special radio programme.

“On one unforgettable day, I interviewed David Cameron in the morning, and Mary J Blige in the afternoon. There’s no other job like it.

“But famous people are not the reason people engage with Woman’s Hour. It’s because the programme still talks about the subjects and challenges no one else goes near.

“I’m very proud of our relationship with the audience and the trust they place in us.”

Her new programme will tell the extraordinary stories of ordinary people across the UK, and it will air on Radio 4 from 9am as of April 2021.
