An award-winning student radio presenter is to take over as host of BBC 6 Music's weekly chart show.

Philippa Treverton-Jones was named best specialist DJ at last year's Student Radio Awards and is currently head of music at University Radio Nottingham.

The 21-year-old from Newport in south Wales conceded it would be "a big leap" to move to a national station.

Lesley Douglas, controller of 6 Music, called her a "natural" broadcaster with "a clear passion for music".

The station had worked closely with the Student Radio Association for the past five years "to support the development of new talent", Ms Douglas added.

And she said she was "delighted that one of its rising stars" was taking over her station's chart show.

The DJ, known on air as Philippa TJ, is a third-year politics student at Nottingham University.

She will present her first show on Sunday at 1400 BST.
