BBC Breakfast favourite Steph McGovern departed the news programme on maternity leave in October 2019 as she prepared for the birth of her first child. She later returned in January 2020 to reveal she would be quitting the show for good. Months later, BBC bosses have announced Nina Warhurst has been appointed as the programme’s new business presenter. 

On the new role, Nina said: “I’m so excited to formally join the BBC Breakfast team, it’s a programme I have always loved – both as a viewer and as a journalist. 

“I grew up locally, so it makes me especially proud that Breakfast is made and broadcast from Salford. 

“This is an incredibly challenging period for our audiences and I look forward to delivering news on our economy in a way that is clear and inclusive.”

Nina has been a regular face on BBC Breakfast since she joined the show two years ago.
