Jeff Stelling will present his first talkSPORT Breakfast show this Monday as the former Sky Sports Soccer Saturday host takes to the airwaves.
Mail Sport revealed back in the summer that broadcasting legend Stelling, 68, was replacing Laura Woods on the morning radio programme.
Stelling will present the show on Mondays and Tuesday, working alongside popular pundit Ally McCoist, with Alan Brazil at the helm for the remainder of the week.
TalkSPORT confirmed Stelling’s start with a funny video which showed Brazil less than impressed as he burned the toast.
Hartlepool United superfan Stelling left Soccer Saturday at the end of last season after almost 30 years in the role.

But as well as his new radio gig, he will be returning to screens as host of a new Premier League goals show on Amazon Prime Video.
Stelling has joined their presenting team as they prepare to screen 20 live matches this season, including a full set of midweek fixtures next week.
Asked if he’s missed being on air, Stelling told talkSPORT: ‘I’ve got two sons, a wife and a daughter. My daughter never watches football, my two sons always do. So, they get the benefit of my wisdom.
‘Actually, they think I’m a real pain in the backside because I will not shut up during the course of a football match. They think I’m still doing Soccer Saturday when I’m not, so you know. So they’re sick of my opinions!’
Stelling added: ‘I won’t be as glamorous as Laura is, that is for sure! That’ll be a disappointment for some people, I know that.
‘If anybody has watched Soccer Saturday over the years, they will know that I love football.

‘So, I hope [listeners] will get that passion, people will know I’m an opinionated so and so.
‘There will be opinions expressed as well. I think the important thing is to have a bit of fun, put a smile on peoples face.
‘I know from getting the 6:47am train this morning from Winchester to Waterloo there weren’t many smiles! You need to bring a smile to peoples’ faces. That would be lovely.’
