Music Editor leaves Radio 2

Colin Martin, the man responsible for the music selection at BBC Radio 2 is to leave the station after six years in charge. He is known for introducing new artists such as Norah Jones, KT Tunstall, Amy Winehouse and James Blunt to the playlist.

The Guardian reports Colin will retire to spend more time with his family.

He described the role to the newspaper as the "biggest in music radio" and said over the past six years Radio 2's output had been transformed from its old "pipe and slippers" image.
