He made the move to a national commercial station, Smooth Radio, where he presented a Sunday evening show called Late Night Love.
But now Mr Torrington, best known for the 12 years he spent presenting his Late Night Love show on commercial radio before moving to the BBC, is back on the BBC airwaves.
He will be presenting Graham Torrington's Late Love Songs at the weekend – a show that is being aired in Bristol as well as seven other stations but produced by BBC Devon.
He is also hosting a new show on BBC WM, which covers the West Midlands, on Monday to Thursday nights.
Mr Torrington became a household name talking about relationships on Late Night Love, which regularly attracted more than one million listeners across the UK on 41 stations and earned him a Sony Radio Academy Award.
He stopped presenting the show in 2008, when he took on his BBC Radio Bristol position.
When he left the BBC last year he said: "I had been very unhappy at BBC Bristol for some time so took the chance to quit when I had the opportunity."
He added: "I do not wish to comment on my thoughts of the management at BBC Radio Bristol."
A spokesperson for BBC Bristol said: "Listeners can tune in to Graham Torrington from April 21 between 10pm and 1am on Saturday and Sunday nights on BBC Local Radio stations across the West and South West, including BBC Radio Devon, BBC Radio Cornwall, BBC Jersey, BBC Guernsey, BBC Bristol, BBC Gloucestershire, BBC Somerset, BBC Wiltshire."
Mr Torrington declined to comment on his move back to the BBC.
