Alan Johnston back at work

Alan Johnston gets back to work today. He’ll be the new presenter of From Our Own Correspondent for BBC World Service. Kate Adie, who currently presents the BBC Radio 4 version which is aimed at a British audience, will continue to present that edition. The Press Gazette has more,

Commenting on his new job, Johnston said: “I hope that the show might benefit from having a regular presenter, and one who has both contributed to it and been a fan for many years. The structure of the programme will stay the same however – the extraordinarily successful FOOC formula would be very hard to improve.” link

Alan’s first edition airs on Saturday 26 January at 2:05am and Sunday 27 January at 0:05am, 11:05am and 3:05pm.
