Breakfast’s Alex Zane exits XFM

XFM’s London breakfast show presenter Alex Zane has finally hung up his XFM headphones, amid unsubstantiated rumours that the presenter had been let go by the station.

An XFM spokesman said: “Alex Zane is a busy man right now and by mutual agreement he is moving on to do other things. We wish him every success for the future."

A spokesperson for Zane responded: "Alex has done all he can at the station and given the number of projects going on he just can't commit to host the show for another year."

After dabbling in stand-up comedy, Zane came to prominence on MTV and his weekly show on XFM. He was suspended from the latter in August last year after airing a song he and his team had written that was deemed offensive by XFM management. The team returned a week later with Zane accusing the network of a massive over reaction.

The presenter has also fronted Channel 4's now defunct Popworld and appeared in the network's Balls Of Steel and the hoax reality TV show, Space Cadets. More recently he's been seen reporting on the new band series, Orange Unsigned Act.
