Spoony to leave BBC Radio 1

Spoony has decided to leave BBC Radio 1 to explore other offers, including hosting programmes on BBC Five Live.

Spoony currently hosts the weekend breakfast show from 7 – 10am and has been with the station for six years, but now feels it is time to move on. Previously Spoony has worked on commercial stations Kiss 100 and Galaxy.

He said: “I’ve had a fantastic six years at Radio 1, it’s a brilliant place to work and has been amazing for my career. I’m going to miss the listeners and the wonderful back-room team that I worked with – they made getting up at a ridiculous time of the weekend that little bit easier. I have a number of very exciting broadcasting irons in the fire and now, leaving Radio 1 on a high, I can explore some of the offers I have on the table.”

Ben Cooper, head of mainstream Radio 1 said: “Spoony has done a great job for the station and with his passion for sport matching his passion for music he has got an amazing career ahead of him and we wish him all the best.”

Spoony has received many accolades: he was nominated in “Blues and Soul” magazine, for “Best Radio DJ of ’98”, and in the same year the Dreem Teem were nominated “Best Club DJs” at the MOBO Awards. In 1999 he received a second nomination and in 2001 he was awarded a MOBO for DJ of the year.
