Slightly off-topic but I couldn't help noticing this...
Simon Mayo and Jo Whiley Radio 2 Drivetime show to end
The Radio 2 Drivetime show with Simon Mayo and Jo Whiley is to end after just a few months on air.
Mayo is leaving BBC Radio 2 altogether but will continue to present his 5 Live film show with Mark Kermode.
Whiley will remain on the station but move to the 7-9pm slot.
Looks like Mayo has potentially been poached by a rival broadcasters as Mayo's twitter announcement mentions "other radio adventures beckon!". As others have commented as the BBC looks to cut costs it's easy pickings for commercial rivals who have higher budgets, and can offer higher salaries to tempt talent away from the BBC.
