One of the BBC’s veteran presenters, Andrew Marr, is leaving the corporation after more than 20 years.

The host of the “Andrew Marr Show” on BBC One, a mainstay on Sunday mornings, said on Friday that he is joining media org Global, where he will continue to present and write for various programs as well as newspapers.

“After 21 years, I have decided to move on from the BBC,” said Marr in a statement posted to his Twitter page. “l leave behind many happy memories and wonderful colleagues. But from the New Year I am moving to Global to write and present political and cultural shows, and to write for newspapers.

“I think British politics and public life are going to go through an even more turbulent decade, and as I’ve said, I am keen to get my own voice back. I have been doing the Andrew Marr show every Sunday morning for 16 years now and that is probably more than enough time for anybody!”

More to come.
