Mayo and Kermode to end Film Review on BBC Radio 5 Live

Simon Mayo and Mark Kermode are bringing their Film Review on BBC Radio 5 Live to an end after 21 years.

The last show will be on April 1st following which RadioToday understands the Drive show will be extended to cover the slot.

In an announcement on Twitter, they said: “21 years is a long time to be clogging up the schedules. We and no one else – have decided to step away… To Withdraw… to spread our wings… to exit, pursued by a bear.”

Whether the show will resurface on another platform or radio station has not been announced, and we await further details from the BBC.

Simon continues his Drive show on Greatest Hits Radio for Bauer whilst Mark continues his other work at the BBC including Screenshot at Radio 4.
