Edith, who is most well known for hosting Radio 1's afternoon, weekend morning and reviews slot, has said that she is excited to be joining 6 music.
"I'm a big fan of 6Music and what it stands for so I am really excited to be joining the team and to be working with Adam. It's going to be incredible fun although I know I will have my work cut out trying to keep up with Adam's dance moves.
"It's also great to have two radio homes," added Bowman, "with Radio 1 where I am continuing my Review Show and now 6."
James Stirling, Head of Programmes for BBC Radio 6 Music says: "BBC Radio 6 Music is all about sharing great alternative music with our audience. We've one musical foot in the past and one in the future and to do this you need passionate presenters with both a sense of humour and a desire to share record collections. I'm happy to say both Adam and Edith have these attributes in abundance. They will fit brilliantly at the heart of our Saturday schedule."
