Simon Hirst and his breakfast team have suspended by Galaxy 105 management following an on-air discussion about trophy souvenirs. The drastic action follows a listener complaint about the team apparently condoning anti-social behaviour.
Galaxy brand marketing director Paul Coleman told The Radio Magazine this week that the station is taking this issue very seriously and has taken swift and appropriate action.
A source at the Yorkshire station told RadioToday.co.uk that the team, including Danny and JoJo, have been suspended without pay but will be back on Monday.
The question, "What have you stolen after a drunken night out" and the following discussion about the topic led to one woman, listening with her two sons, make the complaint direct to the station. It is not known if the complaint will make it to Ofcom.
