This news article discusses Steve Lamacq, a BBC Radio 6 Music DJ, who has decided to scale back his afternoon shows from five days a week to just one after hosting the daily weekday teatime show since 2005. Lamacq has cited feeling tired and the need to spend more time with his wife and young daughter as reasons for this decision. He will take a break in October before returning with a weekly show on Mondays in January, with Huw Stephens taking over his slot from Tuesdays to Fridays.

Lamacq, who is nearing his 59th birthday, also expressed a desire to “give something back” and support the live music circuit, which he owes much of his career to. The head of 6 Music, Samantha Moy, praised Lamacq as a “legend” in the industry and highlighted his dedication to discovering and promoting new and unsigned talent over his 30-year career in radio and journalism, with 20 of those years spent at Music.
Huw Stephens will broadcast his shows from Cardiff as part of the BBC Radio plans to have programming from various locations across the UK.
