BBC Radio 1 host and DJ Zane Lowe is leaving in March to join Apple in the US.
He joined the station in 2001 and has interviewed some of the biggest names in the music industry including Kanye West, Eminem, Jay Z, and Rick Rubin.
Although Lowe’s role has yet to be revealed, his move comes as Apple prepares to relaunch the Beats Music streaming service that it acquired last year.
Annie Mac will take over his spot soon after he leaves.
“I want to thank everyone at Radio 1 for their support and friendship,” he said to his listeners. “The station has allowed me to share incredible music with the country’s best music fans.”
