Broadcaster, news presenter, concert narrator and children’s author Zeb Soanes is joining Classic FM, the UK’s most popular classical music station, to present Smooth Classics at Seven, starting on Monday 4th July.

Zeb will take on the mantle of Classic FM’s much-loved evening programme, which will be extended to three hours every weekday (7 – 10pm). Zeb will handpick the perfect blend of soothing and calming classical music to help listeners unwind, relax and escape at the end of a busy day.

During a hugely successful and distinguished career, Zeb has demonstrated he is a multi-talented broadcaster and, as a former announcer of the Shipping Forecast, is a reassuring and trusted voice on the radio.

Alongside his broadcasting work, Zeb is a popular narrator of concert works such as Peter and the Wolf, Façade, Paddington’s First Concert and many others. His Gaspard the Fox books have led to Gaspard’s Foxtrot, a collaboration with Jonathan Dove in which Zeb narrates the charming story. Fred and the Fantastic Tub-Tub, another of Zeb’s books has recently been performed by the Orpheus Sinfonia in a work composed by James Marangone.

Zeb said: “I am delighted to be joining Classic FM in its 30th birthday year. Performing with orchestras has become one the great pleasures of my life in recent years and I look forward to sharing their extraordinary talents and music with listeners every evening on Smooth Classics at Seven.”
