Louise Minchin quits BBC Breakfast

OHMYGOSSIP — Louise Minchin has quit ‘BBC Breakfast’.
The 52-year-old presenter – who first fronted the morning programme in 2001 and became one of its lead anchors in 2012 – stunned viewers on Tuesday (08.06.21) when she announced she’s departing the show “some time after the summer”.
She said: “I have absolutely loved being part of the six million-strong BBC Breakfast family but after nearly two decades presenting the programme, I have decided it is time I stopped setting my alarm for 3.40 in the morning.
“I will take so many memories with me, including reporting on the shock and anguish of the Manchester Arena bombing; starting a national conversation about menopause; and the life-changing moment I took part in the Breakfast Christmas Cycling Challenge which inspired my ongoing passion for endurance sport, which I will continue when I leave.
“A big thank you to everyone who has watched and supported me, I have loved it and I will miss you all.”
When she leaves the show, Louise is planning to embark on some “really exciting adventures” and is set to write a book.
Asked what she would do next, she replied: “Anybody who watches will be very well aware my passion is endurance sport, and I will absolutely continue to do that. I’ve got lots of really exciting adventures planned. I’m trying to write a book about that as well.
“And I’ll continue with my podcast, which is all about the mental and physical benefits of sport and exercise.
“And I’ll be having lots of lie-ins. That’s what I’m most excited about right now.”
Her co-host Dan Walker admitted he was upset by her decision.
He said: “From a personal perspective, my life will be a lot poorer without you.
“You are not only a star, you are fantastic at your job, you’re brilliant to work with but you’re also a great friend.”
Show bosses admitted they will “miss” having Louise on the show every day.
‘BBC Breakfast’ editor Richard Frediani said: “Millions of viewers have regularly woken up with Louise for 20 years and welcomed her and BBC Breakfast into their homes.
“We will miss her brilliant journalism, good humour and boundless energy. She has been a tremendous BBC Breakfast colleague on and off screen and will always be a friend to the team.”
BBC News director Fran Unsworth added: “I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Louise for her contribution to BBC News – she is a brilliant presenter and journalist and will be greatly missed by her colleagues and the team in Salford.”
