Ken Bruce is presenting his final show on BBC Radio 2 today as the veteran broadcaster admitted it was a “shame” bosses asked him to leave earlier than he anticipated. The Scottish presenter opened his mid-morning programme at 9.30am, receiving messages of thanks from well-wishers when The Zoe Ball Breakfast Show handed over.
Opening the programme, Ken stated: “Lots of lovely music on this programme. Don’t go looking for any secret messages or hidden agendas behind them, they’re just good songs, all the way through. Enjoy.”
Ken, 72, is leaving Radio 2 after 30 years working at the BBC and will join rival station Greatest Hits Radio.
He will be replaced on Radio 2 by Vernon Kay in May – with Gary Davies sitting in until then.
Ken’s exit has sparked an “ageism” row as a number of older presenters, including Paul O’Grady, 67, Steve Wright, 68, and Simon Mayo, 64, have all left Radio in the past year.
