BBC Radio Stoke breakfast presenter Pete Morgan has announced that he won’t be returning to the show, following two months off air.
His Morgan In The Morning show returned to the station in January 2016 when he re-joined Radio Stoke from BBC WM. He’d previously spent five years on breakfast in Stoke from 2007 to 2012.
Pete hasn’t been on the show since early December and today told listeners via his Facebook page that he has left the station.
“It is with a heavy heart that I must tell you that after meeting with management today, we agreed that I will not be returning to the Breakfast Show on BBC Radio Stoke,” he wrote.
“I have worked in the radio industry for 25 years and believe that I have made many friends during that time. I want to thank them for helping me to make some incredible memories. I would also like to thank the listeners. Whether you have heard me on BBC Radio Stoke, WM, Coventry & Warwickshire or 5Live – I hope that I made your time a pleasurable one. Talking to you and sharing your highs and lows has been one of the greatest joys of my life.
“I can leave Stoke behind, knowing that in the short time I was back there, I won an national radio award and left the listenership with higher figures than when I joined. I hope to speak to you again soon. Pete x”
Before joining the BBC, Pete had spells as breakfast producer for both Heart and Galaxy in the West Midlands. Prior to that he’d been a presenter in the 90s on stations including Signal Radio, Marcher Sound and 2CR.
