Former Newsnight presenter Jeremy Paxman is to anchor Channel 4's 2015 general election night coverage.
Paxman left the BBC Two flagship programme earlier this year after 25 years.
Channel 4’s chief creative officer Jay Hunt said: “Jeremy is a compelling presenter and makes truly unmissable TV for those big political moments.
"His sense of mischief and danger make him a fantastic fit with Four.”
Paxman said: “There are new and interesting questions to ask about the way we choose our governments. This should be fun.”
Further details of the channel's election coverage will be announced in "due course", the broadcaster said.
