Radio presenter and voice-over Phil Sayer dies

Professional voice-over and former radio presenter Phil Sayer has died aged 62.

Phil worked at Piccadilly, Red Rose, GMR and Smooth FM, and was a newsreader on BBC North West Tonight as well.

He’ll be remembered for his announcements at railways stations across the South West, Waterloo, and (previously) Birmingham New Street. He is the voice of the the Underground too, being the voice that says Mind The Gap in London’s Northern, Piccadilly and Jubilee tube lines.

His wife and business partner Elinor Hamilton informed colleagues and friends less than two weeks ago that Phil would be stepping down from work due to a sudden decline in health after a two year battle with cancer.

A message on the company’s Facebook page today reads:

“Phil Sayer – voice of reason, radio, and railways. A dearly loved husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle and friend.

We are sorry to announce that this service terminates here.

18.5.53 – 14.4.16″

Tributes have been paid on Phil’s Facebook page and our comments are open below.
