Sacked Tony Blackburn returns to BBC radio
Due to the unique way it operates, the BBC is the first broadcaster to interview Tony Blackburn about sacking him.
Tony has chosen Broadcasting House, the Sunday morning magazine programme on BBC Radio 4 with Paddy O’Connell, to give his only broadcast interview about recent events.
He’ll be on just after 9am on BBC Radio 4, and marks the first time he’ll appear on the BBC airwaves since he left. Even his mid-week repeat of Pick of the Pops was replaced by a programme hosted by Paul Gambaccini.
BBC Radio 2 had a discussion about Tony’s departure on Jeremy Vine’s programme last week but without comment from the man himself.
