Elliott Webb leaves BRMB

BRMB have decided not to renew the contract of breakfast show presenter Elliott Webb after nine years, whilst his co-host Caroline Martin is to start a new late night talk show from October 18th.

The news comes as new owners Orion Media say the station is now 'under construction' as it aims to restore the station to its former glory.

David Lloyd, Director of Programming and Marketing for Orion Media, said: “BRMB made history as the first commercial radio station in England, outside of London, with a unique and rich heritage. Having commissioned extensive research, we have begun the task of restoring it to its former glory – a station which truly belongs to Birmingham and plays its part.

Elliott told the Birmingham Mail: “It’s always a shame when this sort of thing happens in the radio industry. But if you don’t like the way that it works then I suppose you have to do something else.

“Hopefully I’ll be back on the air again in this area before too long.”

Lloyd continued “Elliot has been a great servant to both the station and his audience over the years and we wish him all the very best with his future plans. Whilst we fully understand that regular listeners may be disappointed at the departure of presenters they have grown to enjoy, we hope that our new line-up, which will be constructed show by show over the next few months, will very quickly earn their approval. Sadly, without losing some familiar names, we cannot create room to introduce new talent”.

Russ Morris will take over the BRMB breakfast show until a permanent successor is announced. It is also thought afternoon drive-time presenters Adam and Ruddy are leaving the station.
