Norton to get Ross’s BBC One slot

By | Published on Wednesday 1 September 2010

Graham Norton will replace Jonathan Ross on BBC One as well as Radio 2. Norton’s chat show will be moved into the Friday night slot left vacant following Ross’s departure from the Beeb. The comedian’s BBC chat show currently airs earlier in the week.

Norton’s show already includes some music guests, though it’s not clear if, following the move to Friday, it will feature the regular show-closing music spot that became much sought after by record label pluggers on Ross’s chat show. Very possibly not.

Norton will take over Ross’s former Saturday morning slot on BBC Radio 2 next month.
