Alex said:

“I have absolutely loved waking Tamworth up every morning for the last couple of years.

“When I first started the show it was a dream come true, and I am very sad to have to say goodbye to it.

“I will always be grateful to everyone who listened and to TCR fm for giving me this amazing opportunity.”

Alex is currently enjoying his new job working freelance for BBC WM, he added:
“The BBC is the pinnacle of any career in the media, and I am really excited for the challenges that lie ahead.

“I have been trying to juggle work in Birmingham and my Breakfast Show for some time, but in the end something had to give.

“I have learnt so much at TCR fm and I hope to return soon to present a one-off show every week. I’m also looking forward to a lie-in every now and again!”

TCR fm managing director Daniel Hoult said:
“Alex has done a fantastic job on the Breakfast Show over the past couple of years and we wish him all the best in the future. We are looking forward to launching a brand new daytime schedule for the Sound of Tamworth and have lots of brand new voices who are going to start very soon on TCR fm.”
