Moira Stuart Named News Anchor For Chris Evans' BBC Radio 2 Show
January 7, 2010 at 4:30 AM (PT)
Former BBC TV news anchor MOIRA STUART is returning to the BBC as news anchor on CHRIS EVANS' new BBC RADIO 2 morning show.
STUART, who started with the BBC as a production assistant and then news anchor at RADIO 4 before moving to television in 1981, was dropped as TV anchor in 2007 amidst accusations of age discrimination against older women. The network has determined that her role as TV spokesperson for the government's tax return campaign, which she assumed in late 2008, is not a conflict of interest with her news duties.
