Clint Boon to host his last Radio X show

Radio X weekend presenter and long-serving XFM jock Clint Boon is leaving the station this weekend.

RadioToday reported last month he’s joining XS Manchester to host weekday drivetime, but news of him leaving Radio X was only confirmed at the start of his show last week.

Clint is also leaving his weekly BBC Radio Manchester show. A BBC spokesperson told RadioToday: “We wish Clint lots of luck in his new role and hope to work with him again in the future.”

It’s the same week that Vernon Kay is leaving Radio X, and comes shortly after news that Breakfast Producer Dave Masterman is leaving to join Absolute Radio as Executive Producer.

The station’s new Managing Editor, Matt Deverson, has also confirmed that Ricky Wilson is too busy with his band to host his weekly Radio X programme as well.

Clint has been with Radio X / XFM in Manchester for over a decade, originally joining to host Drivetime in 2006 when it was owned by GCap Media.
