Neil Pringle leaves radio after four decades

Neil Pringle has left BBC Sussex after hosting the breakfast show for the last 14 years.

The programme will now be shared by presenters Danny Pike and Allison Fernes on alternative weeks.

Neil, who has been on the air for almost four decades around the industry, says he is leaving radio and plans to work in video production for charities.

He started at BBC Southern Counties in 1994 as a reporter and moved to the breakfast show in 2006. He later became managing editor of BBC Southern Counties Radio but stepped back to be on-air full time.

A BBC Spokesperson told RadioToday: “Neil has been a key part of BBC Radio Sussex as our Breakfast presenter for the last 14 years and we wish him all the very best for the future.”
