Tony Blackburn to leave Greatest Hits network

Tony Blackburn is leaving Bauer’s City 2 Network this weekend, with his last show planned for Sunday 26th March 2017.

He announced his departure from the Greatest Hits network on his programme yesterday.

Tony started a weekend show on the network for five years, when it was known as the Magic network. He’s recently returned to BBC Radio 2, BBC Radio London and BBC Radio Berkshire after a fall-out over historical events at the corporation. He also hosts a weekly show on kmfm.

He told RadioToday: “I have thoroughly enjoyed my time on the Bauer Network and I will miss the listeners that I have had the pleasure in entertaining for the past seven years or so. I want to thank Bauer for their support over the years and, most importantly, P&O Ferries who have been part of the show since the very first day.”

Owen Ryan, Bauer City Group Content Director added: “Tony is one of UK radio’s true greats who has delighted audiences across the Bauer City 2 network for over seven years. He continues to break broadcasting records year after year and we wish him all the best back at Radio 2”.
