Perry hosted MotoGP for 13 years on the BBC before switching to Formula One in 2013.
The BBC handed back their shared Grand Prix rights at the end of last season because of cuts to their budget, and was picked up by Channel 4.
Perry is not one of the many BBC personnel who have been signed up by Channel 4, who will show ten live races per-season from 2016-18.
David Coulthard will be at the heart of the Channel 4 broadcasts to be produced by Whisper Films, the company he co-founded alongside Jake Humphrey and Sunil Patel.
The 2016 MotoGP season starts on 20th March in Qatar.
