Following a 12-year stint at BBC Radio 1, Zane Lowe has announced he's leaving the station in order to join Apple.

"I want to thank everyone at Radio 1 for their support and friendship," he said in a statement. "The station has allowed me to share incredible music with the country's best music fans."

March 5th will be Lowe's last broadcast; Annie Mac will be in charge of his slot after that.
