The Chris Evans Breakfast Show is the flagship show on BBC Radio 2 in the United Kingdom. It is presented by Chris Evans from 11 January 2010, when Evans took over from Sir Terry Wogan who retired at the end of 2009. The programme airs from 7:00am to 9:30am on weekdays. It was confirmed on 7 September that Evans would succeed Wogan when he retired as presenter of the breakfast show in December.[1] On 6 January 2010, it was announced that Moira Stuart would return to BBC News, reading the news for the Chris Evans Breakfast Show.[2]

The show

The first three songs played on the show were The Beatles' "All you need is love"; The Beatles' "Got to Get You into My Life"; and Frank Sinatra's "Come Fly with Me".

Chris's team of co-presenters on the show include ex-BBC TV newsreader Moira Stuart, sports presenter Johnny Saunders and travel reporter Lynn Bowles.

Features on the show include: The Gobsmackers (two songs selected by a listener that sound great when played back to back); The Wrong Bongs (a bong is played by Evans when a listener points out a factual mistake made by one of the team); The Jukebox Jury (a new song is played on air and listeners must decide whether it is a 'hit' or a 'miss); The Golden Oldie (Moira Stuart reads out the request for a classic song selected by a listener); Hello/Goodbye (At the end of the show, a listener phones in to greet the team by saying 'hello' only for Evans and co. to respond 'goodbye' as the show ends).
