Sarah Kennedy to leave Radio 2

By | Published on Monday 6 September 2010

Sarah Kennedy is leaving Radio 2, it has been announced. Kennedy has been presenting the early morning show on the BBC station since 1993, and has worked for the station on and off since the mid-seventies.

Confirming her departure from Radio 2’s pre-breakfast slot, called ‘Dawn Patrol’, she said last week: “After seventeen years of early starts, the temptation of destroying my alarm clock has proved too much to resist. I shall miss my Dawn Patrollers – their wit, wisdom and warmth – more than I can put into words”. Radio 2 boss man Bob Shennan added: “Everyone at Radio 2 would like to thank Sarah for her many years of sterling service and wish her the very best of luck for the future”.

No word yet on a replacement.
