Sophie Raworth Appointed As Interim Host Of The BBC’s Andrew Marr Show

Sophie Raworth has been announced as the interim presenter of BBC One’s Sunday morning highlight program, now known to viewers as The Andrew Marr Program.

The BBC reports that Raworth, 53, will show Sunday Morning Translation from January 9.

This news follows Marr’s recent announcement that he is leaving the BBC after more than two decades.

The BBC said in a statement that Raworth will lead the popular show for a “short time” while the permanent presenter recruitment process goes on.

The BBC says that after a fixed appointment, the show will start again with a new presenter, title and a new look.

Raworth has covered for Marr in the past and is one of the main hosts of BBC News At Six and Ten, which she has worked with since 2003.

She joined the BBC’s regional trainee program in 1992 and went on to cover for Greater Manchester Radio, and later moved to Brussels as a BBC Regions correspondent.

In 1995, she moved to Leeds for BBC Look North, where she presented her first newsletter. She joined BBC Breakfast News in 1997 as a co-host.

Raworth has also presented for the broadcaster since the Oscars ceremony in Los Angeles, in Washington for the Bill Clinton impeachment trial, and in a special for the Queen’s Jubilee celebrations in 2002.

She has hosted BBC Breakfast with Jeremy Bowen since its debut in 2000 and has also covered election night news, Watchdog, Crimewatch and the Chelsea Flower Show.

Marr’s last show will air on December 19.
