“I will greatly miss the wonderful team at Signal 107 and the amazingly loyal listers that tuned into my show. During my time my show has received many accolades and it’s been a true privilege to host over the last 4 years. Radio has been a massive part of my life and it’s incredibly painful to no longer be able to continue doing the job I have loved doing my whole life however wish Signal 107 and everyone connected with the station all the very best for the future.”
