BBC picks Sophie Raworth to take Andrew Marr’s place temporarily

Sophie Raworth has been announced as the interim presenter of BBC One’s flagship Sunday morning programme, known to viewers as The Andrew Marr Show.

The BBC said Raworth, 53, would present the programme, temporarily titled Sunday Morning, from 9 January.

The news follows Marr’s recent announcement that he is leaving the BBC after more than two decades.

The BBC said in a statement that Raworth would front the popular show for a “short period” while a recruitment process for a permanent presenter took place.

Once a permanent appointment was made, the programme would relaunch with a new presenter, title and look, the BBC said.

Marr’s last show will air on 19 December.
