Colin Murray dropped as presenter of Match of the Day 2

BBC announce Mark Chapman will present show from next season

Colin Murray has been dropped as presenter of the BBC's Sunday night Premier League highlights programme Match of the Day 2.

Mark Chapman will present the show from the start of next season.

Murray, who started his career at BBC Radio 1 and also presents 5 live's Friday night show Kicking Off, and Saturday morning's Fighting Talk, has presented MOTD2 since Adrian Chile defected to ITV in 2010.

"We'd like to thank Colin for his great contribution to Match of the Day 2," said a BBC statement.

"We look forward to him continuing on the show until the end of the current football season.

"He will continue to play a key role in BBC output, especially as a regular presenter on 5 live and across TV output for darts and American football."

Chapman is a presenter for BBC Radio 5 live where he hosts the Monday Night Club and phone-in 606.
