Ash London to leave radio next month
Ash London won’t be returning to radio following her maternity leave.
London made the announcement on her Hit Network national Nights show last night.
London started broadcasting her Ash London LIVE! show in October 2016 on Southern Cross Austereo’s (SCA) Hit Network.
London said she started the show with the dream it wouldn’t be about gossip or “celebrity BS”, but would instead be about championing the music.
“And we did that. We’ve had an amazing run, and at the end of last year when I was renewing my contract, I knew that it felt right that this will be my last year. And then two months later I weed on a stick and there was two lines, and I thought ‘Okay, that’s a confirmation that it’s definitely time’,” she said on air last night.
“So it is sad, but it’s also really exciting, because it means that somebody else gets to pick up the reins and make their dreams come true on Nights like I did.”
London said her permanent replacement had not yet been decided and there will be an announcement in 2022.
The last day of Ash London Live will be Friday, September 3. From September until the end of the year, Late Night hosts Tom Bainbridge and Oliver Morris will fill in from 7pm to 10pm.
The Hit Network’s parent company Southern Cross Austereo (SCA) has been approached for comment.
