|Andy Zaltzman (SH 87-92) has been announced as one of three comedians to host a series of Radio 4’s The News Quiz in 2020. |
Zaltzman, who first featured on the panel show in 2006 and was one of the guest hosts on the last series, will be in charge for the September run, Series 103. Comedians Nish Kumar and Angela Barnes will host the first two series.
Speaking to the British Comedy Guide, Zaltzman said: "It is a great honour to be entrusted with holding all news to account along with Angela and Nish. Over the course of the year, I hope we will be able to quiz the news so hard that it grows up and starts behaving its age. There has been more news than average over the last 100 to 120 years, so, assuming that trend continues, we should hopefully have plenty of news to address."
