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, ���I�۪m 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 you�۪ll join me in thanking her for all she�۪s done for the station and wishing her the very best for the future. We�۪ll 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 it�۪s good to leave at the top then I feel like I�۪m doing that today. I want to thank 5Live for all the good times. There have been many of them. It�۪s 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.
