TV and Radio Broadcaster Jeremy Vine has been announced as the new presenter of Channel 5’s daily current affairs programme. From September 2018 Jeremy will host the programme which will look at the biggest news, issues and stories from around the UK for 120 minutes every morning.

Jeremy said: “Matthew Wright has built a brilliant show that’s a big part of the British TV landscape. I’m delighted to be carrying on all the conversations he has started, with all the guests he’s made me feel I know over the years. Radio 2 has a beautiful editorial overlap with the serious but accessible agenda of this show. I am proud to be Channel 5’s choice to front it.”

The programme will be replacing The Wright Stuff from which Matthew Wright recently announced his departure after an 18 year run of the programme. Undergoing a name change in September, the show will continue to broadcast some of the best currently affairs programming on the air.
