Clare Balding to join Radio 2 Sunday team

Monday October 15, 2012

Former jockey and sports presenter Clare Balding has joined Radio 2 to present a weekly faith programme.

Good Morning Sunday is a show focussing on topical spiritual discussion, and was previously hosted by Aled Jones.

Clare is delighted with her new role.

She said: "I grew up listening to Terry Wogan on Radio 2 with my Mum and I couldn't be prouder to join a station that boasts a host of brilliant, iconic broadcasters.

"I am thrilled to be asked to be a part of the Radio 2 family and look forward to sharing Sunday mornings with listeners who know their eggs from their onions, who enjoy music, conversation and sharing ideas. "

Aled was also sad to leave his post, but thankful for opportunity.

The Walking In The Air singer said: “I have thoroughly enjoyed my last six years on Radio 2. Being part of the network has been life changing and getting to know the lovely loyal Sunday morning family has been so special to me. I will miss you!”
