Re: Steve Wright
He was also 69 yo so you'd expect his role would wind back
Looking at the state of him he also was maybe having difficulty getting through the studio door

Re: Steve Wright
Why is it these days that I whenever a show comes to an end, someone is being cancelled? He was on the BBC non-stop for more than 40 years. He was one of the highest paid. Every show runs its course eventually. It doesn’t mean the presenter is being cancelled.

My dad worked for British Rail for more than 25 years. Was he cancelled when he took redundancy at 63? Was Roy Hodgson cancelled by Crystal Palace? No, time just moves on and people come and people go.

Re: Steve Wright

How is it lying if I am asking for confirmation of my perception that he was gradually cancelled by way of saying "I think"?

In any case it seems my perception was correct.

Re: Steve Wright
Tom spot on... Steve was the best presenter they had left imho...

Like replacing Bobby Moore with George Hilton...

Re: Steve Wright
I liked his afternoon show as did many others, only reason BBC got rid of it was to shoehorn another presenter in who ticks more boxes. Having listened to Scott Mill's show he sounds like a hospital radio presenter. When Steve Wright was on you you he had that national treasure vibe about him.

He was treated terribly, is the actual truth. They took him off a prime time daily slot and gave him a 2 hour show, once a week.

He was devastated, and many close to him say it contributed to his death.

Calling out people for lying when you're ignorant of the facts, is rather pathetic. Think before you type, there's a good boy.

I think the BBC gradually cancelled him didn't they?

Er, no. He was literally presenting a show on Radio 2 the day before he died.

Why make up lies?

Re: Steve Wright
Heard some good tributes today. Someone said that when you were out and about and heard his show on somewhere it was a comforting feeling, could identify with that.

Re: Steve Wright
Didn't he have a character called Holigan just after the doc came out and Gervais the hairdresser.

Sad news

Re: Steve Wright
Of course, most of the time we never saw him. I watched a little montage of clips of him talking on camera and in the recent ones he looked well out of shape - a real mess. Shame.

Very funny top DJ for 40 years.

Barry from Watford
The Elvis impersonator.

Why the BBC cancelled his afternoon show for that useless shirt lifter is beyond me.

Sad news loved his afternoon show. He gave us some great characters.......Sid the Manager, Damian the Social Worker, The Pub Singer to name a few.

RIP Steve

Re: Steve Wright
A staple of British culture. You knew he and his show was good because often when it was on you never actually realised. It was there, in the background, just like furniture is. His show always reminds me of my mum god rest her soul) as she loved him.
