I’m wondering if Roger Finn is leaving South Today? Last night he signed off by saying ‘goodnight... and goodbye’

I didn’t know that. He’s been there a very long time, might event be as far back as when Gordon Burns started at North West Tonight. All the best to those moving on.

Extremely sad news. The first of many regional casualties to come.

There seems to have been quite a exodus of local radio presenters and staff recently, including a lot of older and long serving presenters - those with the better pay off or of pensionable age

There the covid emergency schedules are being made permanent - 4 hour shows, all single headed and a national late night show. So most of the stations now have too many presenters for the schedule and the same with production staff
