Mary Anne Hobbs To Leave Radio One

News Image
After 14 years, BBC Radio 1 Presenter Mary Anne Hobbs is stepping down from her weekly leftfield dance and dubstep show.
Mary-Anne has accepted a new job to teach and mentor students at the University of Sheffield's Union of Students radio station, TV station and the newspaper; and will continue to DJ live, work in film and curate at Sonar festival in Barcelona.
Mary Anne said: "The great freedom the BBC has given me as a broadcaster, has allowed me to help break so many confrontational artists as diverse as Slipknot and Skream, and of course, the whole genre of Dubstep in recent times.
"My current experimental show is in peak condition, it's never been stronger and although it's a very emotional decision to leave the show that I love so much, it's also an optimum moment to bow out at the very top of my game."
Ben Cooper, Deputy Controller, BBC Radio 1, commented: "Mary Anne's passion and energy for her music means she has been an amazing ambassador for Radio 1 in the UK and around the world. We all wish her all the very best for the future."
Her last show on Radio1 will be broadcast on Thursday 9th September from 2-4am.
Radio 1 will announce its plans for the slot in the coming weeks, with the new programme following the tradition of providing distinctive specialist music content.
