Diplo's long-running Saturday night show 'Diplo and Friends' is also leaving the station.
After 17 years at BBC Radio 1, legendary host Annie Mac has announced she will depart the station in July.
"It's all about time, really," Mac wrote in an April 20 statement regarding the departure. "I need more time in the evenings to see my kids now that they are both in school. I would like more time to write fiction and to create podcasts. I also love the idea of leaving the party (and make no mistake working at Radio 1 does feel like a party) with a huge smile on my face, while I'm still having the most fun I can."
Mac started at the station in 2002 as a production assistant on Zane Lowe's program, getting her own program two years later and then moving into the Friday night slot which she's occupied since. During her tenure at the station, Mac (born Annie Macmanus) championed dance music, welcoming scene legends and helping break rising stars.
