BBC Radio Tees presenter Neil Green is stepping down from his role
The plan is to digitize local radio and focus more on online content.
Speaking live today, Neil Green said: “Having presented for BBC Radio Tees and previously for BBC Radio Cleveland, this morning is my final broadcast.
“The BBC said last year they were making changes to local radio and because I could I decided it was time for me to go.”
“I am passionate about public service broadcasting and wish all my dedicated and hard-working colleagues well.”
“I’ve been fortunate to have worked with some incredible people over the years and I just wanted to take the time to thank them and especially you for all you have done to support me.”
Neil joined the BBC in 2002 presenting a news program and later the breakfast show for BBC Radio Cleveland and later Radio Tees.
Jason Horton, BBC Local Production Manager, previously commented on the changes to local radio: “Our aim over the next 12 months is to modernize our BBC Local services in England to strengthen our online offering to communities across the country .”
“We have listened closely to the feedback we have received on the proposed changes to BBC Local Radio programming.
“As a result, we are making a number of changes to the original plan to achieve the best possible balance between live and on-demand services.”
