DJ Johnnie Walker is to step down as host of BBC Radio 2's Drivetime show at the end of March after seven years.
Walker will present a special on the Eagles later this year
From April he will concentrate on rock interviews and a new Sunday programme. He will also host the Radio 2 Breakfast Show when Terry Wogan is on leave.
"I've had a wonderful time presenting Drivetime and enjoyed it enormously. After seven years on one show I feel it's time for a change," he said.
The 60-year-old collected an MBE for services to broadcasting last week.
Walker - who previously worked on pirate station Radio Caroline - began at the BBC on Radio 1 in 1969, moving to Radio 2 in 1998.
He took over the Drivetime slot from John Dunn in 1999, boosting the show's audience by two million.
"The new Sunday show will be give me the opportunity to present a programme with a spiritual angle, something I've been talking to Radio 2 about for over a year," he said.
"And after getting such positive feedback for my Eric Clapton special last summer, I'm keen to do more interviews with the major names in rock."
