The Radio 2 Book Club relocates to The Zoe Ball Breakfast Show
The Zoe Ball Breakfast Show is the new home of the Radio 2 Book Club.
The Radio 2 Book Club first launched on Radio 2’s Drivetime show before moving onto Jo Whiley’s show and then to Steve Wright.
It’s supported by The Reading Agency who oversee the submissions and send the books to librarians across the country to read and give their feedback on. This leads to the creation of a shortlist, from which Radio 2 then selects the titles to feature.
As well as being featured on Zoe’s show, The Radio 2 Book Club will also be available as a weekly podcast on BBC Sounds with bitesize episodes of around 10-20 minutes.
Zoe Ball said this morning: “I extend a very warm welcome to everyone to join us for The Radio 2 Book Club in its brand new home on my Breakfast Show and can’t wait to be the bookish ringmaster, bringing authors and listeners together to chat all things literary!”
Helen Thomas, Head of Radio 2, added: “I look forward to celebrating the joy of reading with Zoe and her listeners, who I hope will enjoy getting stuck into all sorts of books and discovering new authors, many of whom could be the next big thing in publishing!”
The Radio 2 Book Club has been running since 2010.
