Andrew Marr speaks out on BBC exit after 21 years ‘It’s always about the stories!’

“You watch this programme, I hope, for the guests and their stories, not the presenter.

“It’s always about the stories and not the storyteller,” he concluded.

Andrew first announced the news he’d be leaving the BBC in a post on Twitter on Friday.

He wrote: “Personal announcement. After 21 years, I have decided to move on from the BBC.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.”
