Breakfast show host Chris Evans announces he will leave Radio 2 for Virgin Radio



Breakfast show host Chris Evans has announced he will leave Radio 2, and will present his last show in December.
 
The Radio 2 presenter said he would be going to his "spiritual home" with a new show on Virgin Radio.
 
 
He hosted the Virgin breakfast show from 1997 to 2001.


"In many ways Virgin Radio is my spiritual home," he said.


"I see nothing but exciting and groundbreaking opportunities ahead. In a medium that is changing so quickly on a daily basis, the potential for growth is unprecedented.


"Our plan is, to give it all we've got, see where we can get to and have the most possible fun along the way. It makes me smile every time I think about it."


Evans has worked at Radio 2 for 13 years, and broke the news to listeners this morning on his show.


Announcing it on the show he said a hot topic in his house for a little while was "the fact I'm going to leave".


He added: "Some of us are mountain climbers, and if you get to the top of your favourite mountain and stay there, you become a mountain observer.


"I've got to keep climbing.


"I'm going to go, and go again. I'm going to start another adventure.


"I've loved every second. It's never been better, it's never been more current, of course there will never be another Sir Terry.


"Mine is a chapter, not an epic."
