Jeremy Vine joins Channel 5 for daily current affairs show

Channel 5 today announces that award-winning TV and radio broadcaster Jeremy Vine will become the new presenter of Channel 5’s daily current affairs programme.

From September 2018, Jeremy will host the live daily current affairs programme which tackles the biggest news, issues and stories from around the UK, transmitting for 120 minutes every morning. Presenter Matthew Wright recently announced his departure from the show after 18 successful years in The Wright Stuff studio.

Vine is the host of the weekday radio show The Jeremy Vine Show on BBC Radio 2, the most listened-to radio current affairs and music programme in the UK. Jeremy’s extensive TV programme credits include Points of View, Eggheads and Panorama (all BBC One) and he presents the critically acclaimed graphic sections for all BBC election specials, including the recent EU Referendum.

The Wright Stuff broadcasts over 500 hours of current affairs programming every year. The show will undergo a name change when Jeremy Vine joins in September, to be announced in due course. Over the summer, the show will continue to see guest presenters on the daily programme.
