Justin Moorhouse has announced on social media that he’s left BBC Radio Manchester.
The comedian, actor and presenter posted a message on Twitter and Instagram saying: “I keep getting asked when I’m coming back or have left etc. so I thought I’d let you know.
“I originally agreed to do a two hour show on Saturdays and was really enjoying it.
“Then the world changed etc. they asked me and everyone if we could do four hours instead of two. In the spirit of ‘all in it together’ of course I agreed.
“It’s now become clear that four hour shows are now the norm across BBC local radio.
“This decision has come from above the management at Manchester.
“I did try and see if we could sort out something but to no avail.
“I really enjoyed my shows there and especially the friends and colleagues that made it a fun time. As often is the case in radio you don’t get a chance to say goodbye. So. Goodbye for now x”
Justin added to his tweet, “no bad feelings etc.”
In the past, Justin spent time regularly hosting shows on Key 103 including weekday drive, afternoons and latterly Sunday mornings with Coronation Street star Jennie McAlpine. He has also appeared on other stations including BBC Radio 4, 5 Live and talkSPORT.
