  Sara Cox dropped from breakfast
Updated 07 October 2003, 15.00
Sara Cox
Sara Cox is to be dropped from her Radio 1 breakfast slot and replaced by Chris Moyles.

It's a complete swap as Coxy will now present Chris's afternoon show.

She's been doing the show for three-and-a-half years but has been criticised for losing listeners.

The shake-up will take place in January, three months before Coxy's contract for the slot ends.

Radio 1 boss Andy Parfitt said: "I am absolutely delighted that Chris has agreed to host the new breakfast show.

"He was my first and only choice as successor to Sara who has done a great job over the last three-and-a-half years.

Sara once had to apologise after comedian Ali G swore during an interview on the show.
