Jenni Murray to quit BBC Radio 4’s Wife’s Hour | TV and radio


Dame Jenni Murray, whose soft voice graced the airwaves as BBC Radio 4’s Wife’s Hourly Presenter for more than three decades, will be leaving the program.Murray, 70, who is the longest-serving presenter in Woman’s Hour’s 74-year history, “would take a new step in her long and distinguished career as a broadcaster,” the BBC said.

Once described as having the most beautiful voice on radio, she has hosted the show for 33 years. During that time, she broached a wide variety of topics, held politicians to account, and shed light on devastating stories of persecution and rape of women around the world.

She said: “I have spent almost half of my life with Woman’s Hour and it has been a privilege and a pleasure to inform, educate and entertain a loyal and growing audience of women and men. Saying goodbye will be very difficult to do, but it’s time to move on. “
