BBC Radio 5 live has announced a new line-up for the new year ahead of its move to Salford in 2011.

Victoria Derbyshire's show has been cut by one hour and will run from 1000 to midday, followed by a new lunchtime programme presented by Gabby Logan.

Richard Bacon will move from his late-night slot to present a culture, entertainment and current affairs show in the afternoons.

The breakfast show with Nicky Campbell and Shelagh Fogarty remains the same.

"I'm delighted with this quality line-up of hugely talented broadcasters and I'm really excited about the new schedule, which sets us up brilliantly for the move to Salford in 2011," said Radio 5 live controller, Adrian Van Klaveren.

Sony prize

Simon Mayo, who currently presents the station's afternoon show, is moving to Radio 2 to take over Chris Evans' drivetime slot.

But he will still present a new two-hour film show with Mark Kermode on 5 live.

The programme, featuring reviews and interviews with film-makers and actors, will be broadcast on Friday afternoons.

Mayo and Kermode won the speech prize at this year's Sony Awards.

Tony Livesey is replacing Richard Bacon on the late show, where he will debate the issues of the day.

Newsreader Kate Silverton will host a Sunday morning programme which will discuss the major news events of the week.

On Wednesday, Logan will host prime minister's questions with analysis from 5 live's chief political correspondent John Pienaar.
