In April 2025, Petroc Trelawny will be joining Katie Derham as the new co-host of BBC Radio 3’s flagship programme In Tune.

Petroc is currently the voice of the station’s weekday Breakfast (and has been since 2011), which will be taken over by Tom McKinney next Spring. The news comes as current In Tune co-host Sean Rafferty announced his departure after fronting the programme for over 25 years.

Petroc says: “Sean has stylishly and wittily helmed In Tune for three decades, creating a very special space for musicians to perform and share rich insights into their work and their lives. That artists, singers, conductors and composers so relish appearing on the show is in a big part thanks to Sean’s personality; his long stewardship of the programme has made it a vital place to celebrate many forms of music making. Alongside Katie, I will be working hard to ensure we maintain the rich jewel of a programme he invented.
