DJ confirms exit via Twitter
Real Radio Scotland’s long-serving breakfast presenter Robin Galloway has confirmed his departure from the station by sending a tweet to his followers.
Rumours of his exit started late Friday but were confirmed in a now-deleted tweet a few hours later.
Robin has hosted the show for over a decade, starting before the station was bought by GMG Radio and re-branded from Scot FM to Real Radio in 2002.
All traces of the Scottish presenter have vanished from the Real Radio website, although his co-presenter Cat Harvey is still listed as co-host of the breakfast show along with Micky Gavin.
Robin’s tweet said: “Sad 2 announce my departure from Real Radio.. It’s been the best decade of my life. 10 years is a tad 2 long me thinks. New pastures beckon. X”
The Scottish Sun suggests the reason for his departure is because of a prank involving Labour leader Ed Miliband, which also meant the departure of his producer Barrie Hodge.
A GMG Radio spokesperson simply told RadioToday.co.uk: “Yes I can confirm that Robin is no longer with the station.”
