Bam Bam is to leave the breakfast show on Emap station KISS 100. He is currently on holiday but will not return to air after his contract was not renewed.
Bam Bam, real name Peter Poulton has been the host of the flagship show for seven years. He is leaving to work on new broadcasting projects. Robin Banks will continue to present the programme until a new DJ has been found.
Andy Roberts has recently returned to the station as Programme Director and comments: “It’s important to keep a youth station such as Kiss fresh and vibrant. After seven years of the Bam Bam breakfast it is time for a change and it’s good to be able to say goodbye on a high. We wish him well for the future.”
Kiss 100 will relaunch in the summer, whilst Emap are reported to be expanding the brand into other areas of the UK at the same time.
