Some followers, however, expressed their concern on learning that Naga was heading to the radio station.
“No more breakfast tv?” one person questioned the move.
“Good luck….but are you still doing the news with Chaz [Charlie Stayt]?!!!” another asked.
“You’ll be missed on breakfast!,” a third user remarked, misunderstanding the news.
Naga will host her Radio 5 Live programme on Monday to Wednesdays, while continuing to host BBC Breakfast Thursday to Saturdays.
The BBC star previously said she was “very excited” about the new position.
