Tim Gilbert to replace Ben Fordham on Today
Tim Gilbert becomes Today's sports host when Ben Fordham departs at the end of November
Fordham announced earlier this year he would leave at the end of 2014 to focus on his 2GB radio programme.
In an email to staff, producer Mark Calvert said, “Tim is already part of the family, very well-liked by our viewers, and much-respected for his knowledge of sport. He’ll take over in late November, once we’ve given Ben a good send-off.”

Today has seen cast changes in the last 12 months, notably the departure of Georgie Gardner, with Sunrise ahead in the ratings race.
