"Top Gear" has a new host behind the wheel.
British radio personality Chris Evans will take over as presenter of the popular British automotive series, BBC Two announced on Tuesday. The show's future was previously thrown into question when long-time host Jeremy Clarkson was fired in March after striking a producer on set.
"I'm thrilled, 'Top Gear' is my favorite program of all time," Evans said in a statement. "I promise I will do everything I possibly can to respect what has gone on before and take the show forward."
