Eddy Temple Morris quits XFM after 15 years
XFM presenter Eddy Temple Morris has announced his decision to resign from the station after 15 years on-air.
He says the reasons behind his departure are personal and shall remain private, and that it was a very hard decision to make.
His programme, The Remix, will continue on Soho Radio in London instead. He says: “I’m choosing to leave with nothing but love for the station, its stalwart and hugely supportive and passionate staff and my bosses, and friends, Chris Baughen and Mike Walsh, for whom I have enormous respect.”
Before joining XFM, Eddy was the main presenter on the MTV show Up for It Live, presented shows for Atlantic 252 & BBC Hereford & Worcester, co-presented the Pepsi Chart on Five, and Takeover TV on Channel 4.
XFM’s owner Global confirmed to RadioToday today that it is making some changes to the XFM network, including closing XFM Scotland. A spokesperson said: “We are making some changes to XFM which affect a small but important number of presenters and staff. These sorts of decisions are always difficult and we’d like to thank them for their huge contribution to the station over the years and wish them well for the future.”
Eddy tweeted that XFM asked him to stay but he declined.
