Sir David Frost has decided to call time on his Sunday morning news programme Breakfast with Frost after more than twelve years, it was announced today.

The veteran presenter will front his final show early next year after the next General Election.

After Breakfast with Frost ends, he'll begin work on a new series called The Frost Interview, which will see him interview "people at the heart of the news" both in the UK and on an international scale.

"I'm enormously excited about the new series of interviews," said Frost, 65. "The twelve years of Breakfast with Frost have been some of the most fulfilling years of my career but, once we're through the next Election, I feel that the time will be right to ring the changes.

"The new series of interviews will allow us to bring additional insight to the key domestic and global issues and will, as ever, tackle the main players at the heart of the story."

During his 40-year career, Frost has tackled hundreds of leading global figures; most famously, former US President Richard Nixon in 1977, whom he questioned on the Watergate affair. He also holds the distinction of being the only person to have interviewed the last six UK Prime Ministers and the last seven Presidents of the US.

Richard Sambrook, the BBC's outgoing director of news, said: "The new interviews will capture the intellectual calibre and analysis of world events associated with Breakfast with Frost, reflecting the heart of the news agenda."

Frost has resigned to the BBC with a new three-year contract.
