BBC's John Humphrys: I'm not planning to pack it in just yet

Presenter signs nine-month extension to Radio 4 Today contract and will also front BBC1's Mastermind for another three years

John Humphrys, the presenter of Radio 4's Today programme, has said he has no intention of stepping down after signing a nine-month extension to his contract, which expires at the end of the year.

Humphrys, who has been a presenter on Radio 4's flagship news programme since 1987, has also signed a new three-year deal to continue fronting BBC2 quizshow Mastermind.

Humphrys, who turns 70 in August, said: "I'm not planning to pack it in just yet. I'm rather enjoying the job. I've no plans to shuffle off this mortal coil."

The short-term extension to his current two-year Today contract, which has just expired, is understood to be a result of the BBC's review of the way it pays its highest-paid stars following controversy over tax avoidance and the use of personal service companies. »
