Iain Lee leaves Absolute Radio late show
Iain Lee has left Absolute Radio, exactly two years after starting on the 11pm-1am weekday show.
The former XFM and LBC host joined the station in 2008, originally presenting a Sunday night programme.
He then moved to weeknights in October 2009.
The news was announced to listeners on his show’s Facebook page, which said: “We’d like to share the news with you that we have regrettably, mutually, decided not to continue with Iain Lee’s late night show into 2012, which signals the end of the current series. As sometimes happens in radio, Iain’s show ends with immediate effect, although his podcasts will naturally remain available. We wish Iain the very best with his other varied projects. The 11pm-1am Monday to Thursday will be covered by existing Absolute Radio broadcasters for the immediate future.”
Clive Dickens, Chief Operating Officer at Absolute Radio told RadioToday.co.uk: “Iain Lee is an incredibly talented and unique broadcaster who has made an enormous contribution to the brand and station over the past three years. We wish him well for the future.”
Ian’s last show was on Wednesday last week, with his producer posting on Facebook on Thursday “Dear listeners, there is no show this evening due to unforeseen circumstances, Eloise x”
