BBC u-turn over David Allen’s final radio shows

BBC presenter David Allen has been told he won’t be hosting his final radio shows following an announcement over being axed.

He told listeners on Saturday evening that he only had three more shows to go before his time at the corporation was up.

He’s been with the BBC for 20 years but David says bosses decided he attracted the wrong kind of audience.

David was informed by a senior BBC manager on Thursday that he wasn’t welcome back to host his final three shows as planned, despite being told the opposite days earlier.

The BBC confirmed the move to RadioToday, saying: “His contract was coming to an end. David won’t be back on air.”

The programme was broadcast from BBC Radio Solent in Southampton and syndicated across Solent, Solent, Sussex, Surrey, Berkshire, Oxford and Kent.
