George Lamb will hand off to Cerys

After some well-received guest slots on the channel over the last few months, Cerys Matthews has been signed up as maternity leave cover on 6Music. Nemone's off to have a baby, and - apparently by law - the lunchtime show must have a female presenter just as surely as none of the other daytime slots may:

Bob Shennan, Radio 2 and 6 Music controller, said: "Cerys' amazing passion for music delivered in a charmingly engaging way is a welcome addition to 6 Music and will provide the perfect lunchtime cover whilst Nemone is away."

It's funny: "charmingly engaging" doesn't sound like a ringing endorsement of her on-air style, although a lot of daytime on 6Music could do with a massive injection of charm. And engagement.

It used to be the same on Radio 1 in the 1990s, funnily enough (Brambles, Freud, I'Anson, Whiley ...)
