North East radio presenter Mike Elliott dies

Mike The Mouth Elliot, a popular radio presenter from the North East, has died at the age of 68.

Mike started his radio career with Century FM when he was nicknamed as Mike The Mouth in 1995, and hit the headlines himself on numerous occasions for this style of presenting on his nightly phone-in, and ability to get sacked as a result.

He also worked on Magic in the north East and Sunderland’s Sun FM. He went on to host a networked phone-in on TLRC stations called North South Divided in 2006.

John Myers, Managing Director of Century FM has paid tribute on his blog, saying “He could talk without a caller on the air for hours on end or he could go through them as fast as you like. He listened, he chatted but above all, he was great radio.”

He told RadioToday: “Mike Elliott was a great North East entertainer and a wonderful communicator. Fun, mad and great radio. He left his mark on the NE audiences. You can’t do better than that!”

Tributes have been paid on social media today, including these tweets:
