Sally Traffic departs Radio 2 Drivetime

Sally Boazman, known to millions as Sally Traffic on BBC Radio 2, is taking the next exit from the Simon Mayo Drivetime show.

She’s been at the station since 1999, when it first wanted a dedicated traffic reporter. Sally worked with Johnnie Walker, Steve Wright, Jeremy Vine and Chris Evans over the years.

Before that Sally was at AA Roadwatch and London Weekend TV, and was also Chief Travel Reporter for BBC GLR.

Radio 2 presenter Simon Mayo has blogged about her departure from his show, saying: “Sally has decided to call it a day at the travel desk after 15 years of hard slog and devotion to the M25.

“Afternoons will not be the same! What will I do without someone to find an innuendo in every sentence? Who can match the throaty appeal of the trucker’s pal? (she’s snorting at that one obviously) Even from afar I always thought Sal had one of the best voices on the radio and it has been great to have her on the team (stop it Sally). How can we mark her retirement? What tribute can the show pay? Why, SALLY TRAFFIC oldies of course. What greater honour…”
