Vanessa Feltz has been confirmed as the new presenter for the Radio 2 Early Breakfast show.

As the JC reported last week, the Jewish broadcaster will take over from Sarah Kennedy in the slot, starting from January 2011.

Her new role will not prevent her from continuing to present her weekday programme on BBC London.

Ms Feltz said she was “overjoyed” to be joining the UK's most listened to network.

“I'm a huge fan of Radio 2 - home of many of the country's most beloved presenters.

"I'm utterly thrilled to be handing over to Chris Evans every morning - it's my idea of the perfect start to the day.”
