Over the last six months I have been hinting heavily that I expected to leave the BBC in 2008. I’ve been with the corporation for 22 years working in Belfast in Radio Ulster – across a range of genres – and Radio 1 and Radio 4 in London. There was even a bit of TV for a short while until I came to my senses. For the last 10 years I’ve been in New Media where I have led the team since 2001.
The escape committee was formed, plans were laid and a tunnel has been dug. So barring any unexpected alarm bells and over zealous camp guards, I’m outta here.
Dates are to be confirmed and final plans are to be laid. But it’s time to go.
