Toby Foster suspended from Radio Sheffield

BBC Radio Sheffield breakfast presenter Toby Foster has been suspended after comments were made by him on Twitter.

Toby took to the social network on Wednesday evening after a meeting with his manager, in which he said he ‘pretty much got sacked’.

He also made reference to the Danny Baker incident of 2012 but said there was ‘No Danny Baker type rant here. I love the Beeb.’

But it was a tweet which insulted his boss which led to his suspension, in which he called his manager a c***.

In an email to staff, seen by RadioToday, Head of BBC Yorkshire and Lincolnshire Helen Thomas said: “I want to make it clear the BBC does not condone the offensive language used by Toby in his Twitter feed which was directed at a member of staff. I have met with Toby today and he has offered a full apology to his colleagues and the public for the comments he has made.”

Toby took over the breakfast show on BBC Radio Sheffield in 2007 after a schedule shuffle at the station. He has been unavailable for comment prior to publishing.

Paul Walker will be presenting breakfast 7-10am next week.
