Nihal Arthanayake, a regular presenter on BBC Radio 1 is set to join the BBC Asian Network to take-over the mid-morning phone-in each weekday. He will replace Anita Rani, who will move to The Asian Network Report which airs each Monday evening at 6:30pm.

Nihal already presents Kicking Off With Nihal on Saturdays during the football season on the Asian Network and simulcasts his Radio 1 show with Bobby Friction on Tuesday evenings. He has deputised on the Asian Network phone-in before and has authored TV documentaries on social issues and multi-culturalism.

Nihal said: "People know me primarily as a music person but I take great interest in issues that affect the Asian community in the 21st century. The phone-in really gets under the skin of what British Asians are thinking and how that affects what it's like to live in Britain for everybody."

Asian Network Controller Bob Shennan said: "Nihal and Anita are exciting BBC talents with a big future. They will be filling two crucial roles on the network and bring their energy and insight to the heart of our journalism and debate."
