One of the nation’s most popular and respected broadcasters joins Classic FM as the station’s new presenter in February 2019

Moira Stuart, one of the nation’s best known and best loved presenters, will join Classic FM from February 2019 as a morning news presenter and, from July 2019, as a weekend presenter with her own Saturday show.

Moira will present the news on Classic FM every weekday morning from 6am to 10am – during Classic FM’s More Music Breakfast show and the station’s flagship mid-morning programme presented by John Suchet.

From July 2019 she’ll join Classic FM’s star weekend line-up to present her own Saturday afternoon show, Moira Stuart’s Hall of Fame Concert, 3pm-5pm.

In her show she’ll celebrate the music that’s been voted into the annual Classic FM Hall of Fame – the world’s biggest poll of classical music tastes. She’ll dig into the archives to discover legendary performances of great works, alongside brand new releases. The show will contain full works – including many of the world’s most famous concertos and symphonies heard in their entirety. She’ll also present a new weekend show in autumn 2019.

Moira Stuart joins Classic FM’s weekend presenter line-up which already includes Alexander Armstrong, Myleene Klass, Bill Turnbull, Alan Titchmarsh, Charlotte Hawkins and Aled Jones.

Sam Jackson, managing editor of Classic FM said: “Moira is a broadcasting legend and is known to millions of people on television and radio, so I am thrilled that she has chosen Classic FM as her new home. Her passion for classical music and decades of experience make her the perfect addition to our 2019 line-up. From her morning news bulletins to her new weekend show – and with another new series to follow – I know that our 5.2 million weekly listeners will join me in welcoming her to Classic FM next year.”
