Sir David Frost announced yesterday that, after 12 years, he is to bring his Sunday morning Breakfast With Frost programme to an end.
The BBC has commissioned the veteran broadcaster to host a new occasional series, The Frost Interview, instead, as part of a three-year deal.
It will be launched after the general election, expected next year, when Sir David will broadcast his last Breakfast With Frost. "The 12 years of Breakfast With Frost have been some of the most fulfilling years of my career but, once we're through the next election, I feel that the time will be right to ring the changes," Sir David said.
Sir David began Breakfast With Frost in January 1993 and guests have included Nelson Mandela, Bill Clinton, President George Bush, Vladimir Putin, Tony Blair, David Beckham and Sir Paul McCartney.
Richard Sambrook, the BBC's director of news, said: "Sir David Frost's remarkable 40-year career has ... established him as one of the world's foremost interviewers. The new interviews will capture the intellectual calibre and analysis of world events associated with Breakfast With Frost, reflecting the heart of the news agenda."
