New Companion to be announced on Saturday 23 April 2016
The BBC have announced that the new Companion will be revealed on Saturday 23 April 2016 - during the half-time interval of the FA Cup semi-final match between Everton and Manchester United. As the game kicks off at 5.15pm, expect the announcement between 6pm - 6.15pm.
So, I'm guessing the ratings for "Match of the Day" will peak at half-time...and drop as soon as the game restarts. Why they're announcing this during a football match...I have no idea.
