Quote:
Johnny Vaughan has left the breakfast show on 95.8 Capital FM. His last show was today.

The London show will be hosted by Greg Burns and current co-host Lisa Snowdon until a replacement is announced in the new year.

Johnny took over the show in 2004 from Chris Tarrant.

I have just loved doing this job,” said Johnny “but after all these years of getting up in the middle of the night, I really think the time is right to hand over the microphone to someone else. It’s been a joy waking up London every morning and a thrill to have been part of the broadcasting tapestry of this great city.”

Richard Park, Global’s Director of Broadcasting said: “Johnny has done a fantastic job over the years, particularly recently, building the programme with Lisa Snowdon, into London’s most popular commercial radio breakfast show. Johnny is a skilled broadcaster on radio and television,” added Park, “and we thank him for his time with 95.8 Capital FM, while wishing him every success for the future.”

Wondering what he did wrong to get such a swift sacking.

Guessing his contract was due to be renewed and didn't want to continue. I would think the huge pay had been reduced over the years. Some are suggesting Dave Berry to take over.

I did think that, sudden departure from Capital is strange. He did bring in the listeners, so that wouldn't be the reason. I guess we will know in due course. He was good on Big Breakfast.

Apparently he was told they weren't renewing his contract and he decided to leave immediately instead of working out the time.
