Simon Pattern to leave BBC after 30 years

BBC Radio York’s Managing Editor Simon Pattern is to leave the BBC after 30 years working in the English Regions.

Simon started his BBC career at Radio York almost three decades ago and returned there as Managing Editor in February this year. Previously he was at BBC Radio Humberside for over ten years.

Helen Thomas, BBC Head of Regional and Local Programming for Yorkshire, East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire, told RadioToday: “Simon joined the BBC in the 1980s when the phones were key and lamp, the latest recording device was the uher, and razor blades were handed out to staff. Radio Humberside was named Sony Station of the Year under his leadership and he was instrumental in telling the story of Hull as it campaigned to win the 2017 UK City of Culture title.

“Last year Simon moved back to the place where his BBC story began – BBC Radio York. I want to thank Simon for all his hard work, his dedication to local radio in both Hull and York and for the support he has given to the individuals and teams he has worked with.”
