Jane Garvey is leaving Radio 4’s Womans Hour programme after 13 years of presenting the show. Jane will be presenting a major new interview programme in the new year and the successful podcast that she presents with Fi Glover, Fortunately, will also be moving onto the Radio 4 schedule in 2021.
Jane said of her departure from Woman’s Hour:
“It has been a real privilege to play a small part in the history of this very special radio programme,” she said. “On one unforgettable day, I interviewed David Cameron in the morning, and Mary J Blige in the afternoon. There’s no other job like it. But famous people are not the reason people engage with Woman’s Hour. It is because the programme still talks about the subjects and challenges no one else goes near. I’m very proud of our relationship with the audience and the trust they place in us.”
