Dotun Adebayo to end Sunday show on BBC Radio London

BBC Radio presenter Dotun Adebayo says he has been axed from his Sunday evening show on BBC Radio London.

He has hosted Dotun on Sunday, talking about London’s diverse communities and the issues affecting them, for over 20 years.

Dotun tweeted to say listeners should listen on Sunday evening to hear what they are about to lose as he won’t be presenting the show after 31st March.

But BBC Radio London responded to say the Sunday evening show will continue to focus on stories about London’s black community, but without him. In a tweet, they said: “There have been reports BBC Radio London’s Sunday evening show looking at issues in London’s black community is ending. That is incorrect. Dotun Adebayo is stepping down as presenter but the programme is continuing.

“We’re committed to serving London’s diversity throughout our schedule. Dotun will still present his other programmes on the station.”

Dotun replied saying the BBC statement is incorrect, saying he was axed from the show: “At no time have I ‘stepped down’ from my role presenting the BBCs only black political debate programme. It was axed.”

Dotun has been confirming on-air that “Dotun on Sunday” has been axed and it was not his decision to step down.

A open letter of complaint has been created by BME Lawyers for Justice and has been shared on social media.

Dotun hosts Up All Night on BBC Radio 5 Live three days per week, in addition to other BBC Radio London programmes.
