Evan Davis, BBC Economics Editor, is to join BBC Radio 4’s flagship current affairs programme Today as a presenter, as Carolyn Quinn leaves to concentrate on her other BBC projects.Evan joins the Today team for 12 months, full time.
“It’s perhaps a bit annoying to take a break from my current job just at the very time the economy seems to be getting interesting. But Today is a radio institution and I’d obviously be mad to turn down a chance to present it.” Evan Davis said.
Evan Davis is also the presenter of BBC Two’s popular business programme Dragons’ Den. Evan joined the BBC in 1993 as an economics correspondent for BBC radio and daily TV news programmes. In 1997 Evan became the Economics Editor for Newsnight and then in 2001 he became the BBC’s Economics Editor.
