Chris Evans has announced he will leave Radio 2, and will present his last show in December.
The Radio 2 presenter has been at the BBC for 13 years, told 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 our mountain climbers, and if you get to the top of your favourite mountain and stay there, you become a mountain observer.
Evans said: “I have absolutely loved every single moment of my time at Radio 2. The last 13 years have flashed by in what seems like the blink of an eye. I have learnt so much from so many people to whom I will be eternally grateful.

Pepsi, the NFL and Roc Nation has announced artists Jennifer Lopez and Shakira will perform for the Pepsi Super Bowl LIV halftime show on February 2, 2020 at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Fla.
Pepsi and the NFL collaborated with Roc Nation to bring these two icons together for the first time ever, for what will be an unforgettable performance on the world’s biggest stage.
“Ever since I saw Diana Ross fly off into the sky at the Halftime Show, I dreamed of performing at the Super Bowl,” Lopez said in a statement. “And now it’s made even more special not only because it’s the NFL’s 100th anniversary, but also because I am performing with a fellow Latina. I can’t wait to show what us girls can do on the world’s biggest stage.”
“I’m so honored to be taking on one of the world’s biggest stages in the company of a fellow female artist to represent Latinos and Latinas from the U.S. and all over the world — and to top it off, on my birthday!” Shakira said. “This is a true American dream and we are going to bring the show of a lifetime!”
Jennifer Lopez is an award-winning singer, actress, producer, and entertainer who has established herself in music, film, and television. She is a successful recording and touring artist who has sold over 75 million records and has a cumulative worldwide box-office gross of over $3 billion.
Shakira is a Colombian singer-songwriter and multi-GRAMMY award winner. She has sold over 75 million records worldwide and has won numerous awards including three GRAMMYs, eleven Latin GRAMMYs, and several World Music Awards, American Music Awards and Billboard Music Awards, to name a few. She is the only artist from South America to have a number one song in the U.S., has had four of the 20 top-selling hits of the last decade, and is one of the top-5 YouTube artists of all time.
The first exclusive interview between the two artists will air tonight on Thursday Night Football during halftime of the 8:20 p.m. ET game.
