New Presenter For Love Songs Show 










Radio 2's popular request show, Steve Wright's Love Songs, is to continue with a new host following the star's death, the BBC has confirmed. 

Michael Ball will take the reins from June, and promised to continue Wright's "extraordinary legacy". 

"I'm beyond excited and more than a little nervous," he added, noting that his predecessor had made the programme "'appointment to listen' radio". 

Wright hosted the show from 1996 until the week before his death in February. 

Originally called Sunday Love Songs, it features a blend of dedications from listeners, personal stories and classic love songs. 

Wright's final episode was a pre-recorded Valentine's show, broadcast on 11 February, 2024. 

Throughout the programme, the DJ exuded his usual friendly radio presence, cracking jokes between songs and singing over familiar tunes. 

After two hours, the radio legend signed off by saying: "I'll be back for more love songs next Sunday. Ta-ra then."
