Garvey, who was the station's first voice when it launched in 1994, will replace Martha Kearney, now the host of Radio 4's The World At One.
The co-presenter of Five Live's drivetime show for the past 13 years, Garvey will join Jenni Murray, the main presenter of Woman's Hour.
Garvey said she was "thrilled" to be joining a "part of radio history".
She added that the programme "has a special place in so many people's lives".
Radio 4 controller Mark Damazer said: "Jane has verve and wit and she has demonstrated over many years an ability to deal with a huge array of current affairs topics.
"It's a very good day for Radio 4," he added.
Garvey will make her first appearance on the programme on 8 October.
The programme marked its 60th anniversary in October 2006.
