Tony Blackburn to continue with kmfm radio show

Commercial radio station kmfm has confirmed to RadioToday that it will continue to broadcast Tony Blackburn’s weekend show after being sack from the BBC.

A spokesperson told us: “kmfm will be supporting Tony Blackburn fully and will be continuing his broadcast contract. His show will air as normal this Sunday between 4pm-7pm on our stations.

“He is a great asset, a fantastic broadcaster and someone we are proud to work with”.

Meanwhile, Tony Hall has confirmed this morning that Tony has indeed left the BBC, after an statement was issued by Tony yesterday.

The DG says: “This is one of the most important enquires in the BBC’s history and that has put even greater responsibility on everyone who has taken part in the enquiry to co-operate fully and to be open.

“Dame Janet has rejected his evidence and has explained why. I have to take that extremely seriously. My interpretation of that is that Tony fell short of a standards of evidence that such an enquiry demanded. I am making no judgement or accusations about events or behaviours about what happened in the past but simply about what he has done now and what he has done in front of this really crucial enquiry.”

Tony Blackburn also broadcasts on the Bauer City 2 Network, and RadioToday has asked Bauer if his programme will continue as planned. We’ll update this story when we hear.
