Frank Skinner tells listeners he’s leaving Absolute Radio

Frank Skinner announced to his Absolute Radio listeners this morning that he is to leave the station.

The comedian and presenter who has been with the station for 15 years, suggested his contract wasn’t being renewed.

He told his listeners: “We had a good run but I realise that in recent times but I am ever more becoming Grandad from The Simpsons, but even so um, yes, I’m not going to pretend I took it… well I took it well in that we’ve had 15 years and Absolute have actually been very, very good to us in those 15 years but I didn’t take it well, I took it well in the way David Tennant took it well as the 10th Dr when he started to regenerate and said “I don’t want to go”.

We’re not just going now, I’m not going to say bye and that’s the end we’ve got, like, several other, we’ve got some notice to serve, but um yeah, but no that was um… that’s it!”

There’s no word on who will replace Frank, but the station says it will share details of its future summer schedule in due course.
