Mark Goodier has been drafted in to present BBC Radio 2’s Pick of the Pops programme this weekend.
The show, made by independent production company Unique, has been presented by Tony Blackburn since 6th November 2010 when he replaced Dale Winton. Mark Goodier, CEO of Wise Buddah, will host the show for at least the next four weeks.
Tony was let go by the BBC this week after it emerged his version of events over a 1971 allegation does not tally with the corporation’s.
All his BBC radio programmes have ceased – including Friday mornings on BBC Radio Berkshire which Sarah Walker is hosting this week. His BBC Radio London Soul Show will be presented by Jaki Graham this weekend and Lemar next weekend.
Tony will continue with his commercial radio show on kmfm, but it’s unknown at this point if he’s appearing as normal on Bauer stations this weekend.
