Long serving BBC 5 Live presenter, Aasmah Mir is quitting the station after 11 years.

In an email to staff on Friday morning, controller Adrian Van-Klaveren said, I۪m sorry to tell you that Aasmah Mir has decided to leave 5 live in early November at the end of her current contract.

I know you۪ll join me in thanking her for all she۪s done for the station and wishing her the very best for the future. We۪ll announce her successor as the permanent co-presenter of Drive in due course.

Aasmah said, 5 live has been my family and my home for the past 11 years and I will really miss my colleagues. The time is right, though, to start the next chapter in my broadcasting career. I leave behind incredibly fond memories of my time on air here. Most notably, I will miss working with Peter. Who will get his tea now? Our time together has brought record RAJARS and two Sony Golds if it۪s good to leave at the top then I feel like I۪m doing that today. I want to thank 5Live for all the good times. There have been many of them. It۪s a station staffed by some of the very best in the business and I wish everyone continued success.۝

She has recently been presenting ‘Drive’ with Peter Allen on 5 Live.
