John Humphrys to interview Tony Blair and David Cameron as Today programme dedicates chunk of show to honouring longest serving presenter

Public figures will heave “a collective sigh of relief” as John Humphrys leaves the Today programme after 32 years, the BBC director-general has said.
Humphrys presents his final edition of the Radio 4 news show on Thursday morning, signalling the end of his BBC career.
Writing in the Telegraph, Lord Hall of Birkenhead said: “As John finally hangs up his headphones this morning, there is perhaps no greater tribute than the collective sigh of relief that will be issued by leaders and public figures all around the country.”
Lord Hall praised Humphrys’ “heroic contribution to journalism” and described him as one of the industry’s greats.
