Paul Gambaccini to return to BBC Radio in November
The BBC’s Paul Gambaccini is to return to the airwaves next month after a year away from broadcasting following his arrest over allegations of historic sex crimes.
Shortly afterwards Gambaccini described being “falsely accused” as “12 months of trauma”, but assured his listeners he would be “back at work soon”.
The BBC today confirmed he would return in November.
In a statement it said: “Paul will return to his usual BBC Radio 2 show – presenting America’s Greatest Hits – from Saturday 15 November and his role presenting Counterpoint (a quiz show) on BBC Radio 4, covering the semi-finals and the final of this year’s competition, to be broadcast from Monday 24 November.”
