Bacon quits Xfm

Xfm drivetime presenter Richard Bacon's quitting the London station at the end of his current contract – to do more work at BBC Five Live. The former Blue Peter TV presenter is to host a new version of the popular Fighting Talk format on Sunday nights.

It's reported that the new show, starting on 1st April, will run for 10 weeks and will be called "Fighting Talk: Any Other Business". It'll cover a wide range of news and current affairs issues, compared with the Saturday morning version's sporting theme. Bacon did a couple of pilots of the news-format style Fighting Talk for production company World's End late last year.

Richard previously spent a couple of years at Five Live but left in 2004 to replace Neil Fox as drivetime presenter on London's Capital FM. Last year he swapped studios inside Leicester Square with Lucio and returned to Xfm.

Bacon leaves GCap on 30th March. Xfm London programme director Adam Uytman told RadioToday.co.uk: "Richard's decided to pursue other projects. We're sad to see him go but in the 4 years that he's been here he's made some great radio and we wish him all the luck in the future."
