Veteran BBC broadcaster Paul Gambaccini has been arrested on suspicion of historical sexual offences.
He was held at his home in south London on Tuesday morning as part of Scotland Yard's Operation Yewtree.
The radio presenter, whose broadcasting career spans 40 years at the BBC, answered questions in police custody before being released on bail.
A BBC spokesman said Gambaccini denies the allegations against him.
"Paul Gambaccini has decided that, in light of today's media attention, he would rather not be on-air at present and we respect that decision," he said.
"Therefore, Paul will not be presenting on BBC Radio in coming weeks and replacement programmes for the period will be announced soon."
