NATASHA KAPLINSKY IS to leave the BBC to replace Kirsty Young as the anchor of Five News, it has been announced,
Natasha, who will join Five in the new year, has been at the BBC since 2002 when she left Sky News' flagship Live at Five show and replaced Sophie Raworth as presenter of the BBC Breakfast News.
Speaking to the Daily Mail, Natasha said: 'After five incredibly rewarding years at the BBC, I found the chance to work with the team at Five too exciting to pass up.'
