Former England cricketer Ronnie Irani has left talkSPORT breakfast where he has been co-hosting with Alan Brazil.
Ronnie was on-air this morning (Thursday) but speculation has been mounting during the day on Twitter as his profile was removed from the breakfast show page at talksport.co.uk.
A spokesperson from talkSPORT has confirmed his sudden departure: “Ronnie Irani will be leaving the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast with immediate effect.
“Ronnie has achieved huge amounts on the breakfast show over the past six years, during which it reached record numbers of listeners, but the time is right for a change.
“He will remain an integral part of talkSPORT during the Ashes this summer and winter, playing a key role in our cricket coverage.”
A single tweet from Ronnie this morning sees him thanking his listeners:
Thank you to everyone, mean it sincerely. x
