Moyles not going anywhere

Our industry is making headlines again, this time with Chris Moyles. Reports suggested he was being axed in September, but his agent and Radio 1 have denied the rumours.

[link=]Reports[/link] in [link=]newspapers[/link] and [link=]online[/link] said bosses want a rising star for the breakfast slot, and that Scott Mills will cover whilst a replacement is found.

A source told The Sun: "The BBC were planning to break the news gently by convincing Chris it was his decision to quit. He will be totally devastated to leave. His ego will take a battering. He’s been involved in big controversies. Patience was beginning to run out. The early plans to introduce a new generation of stars to the station are now under way. Chris is still in the dark about the moves behind the scenes, but Scott Mills has been made aware.”

To which Radio 1 replied: “We’ve no plans to take Chris off breakfast. He hosts a highly successful show.” When asked how long Chris will stay with them the spokesman refused to comment."
