Tony Horne exits Metro Radio breakfast

Metro Radio’s breakfast host Tony Horne has left the station after six consecutive years.

The presenter was contracted to the Bauer Media station until December 2011 but all mentions of him have now been removed from the station website.

Tony was on-air this morning as normal – with no mention of leaving the station. Highlights of the show, which turned out to be his last, were posted online earlier. His twitter account simply said “So…” on Thursday afternoon.

Bauer Media tells us he has left the station to pursue other career opportunities.

Bauer Radio Regional Managing Director Cath Ellington said: “Tony has worked tirelessly to build his audience at Metro over the last six years and we are deeply grateful for his huge contribution to the station. He is a talented broadcaster and with a weekly following of 200,000 listeners we recognise that he will be missed by many of his loyal fans and work colleagues. We wish him all the best.”

Tony first started “Tony Horne in the Morning” in 1993 on GWR FM, before moving to Metro a year later. He stayed in the North East until Century FM Northwest hired him in 2000, where he stayed until a return to Metro in 2004.

The programme has been regularly presented from Key 103 in Manchester, to suit Tony who lives in nearby Cheshire. Breakfast will be presented by Brian Moore until a further announcement will be made.

“We are constantly reviewing our programming and presenter line up and currently developing exciting new plans for Metro’s breakfast show which will be announced very soon. In the meantime, Home Run presenter, Brian Moore, will switch to presenting breakfast along with current co-host, Anna Foster,” Cath continued.
