The following is a letter from James Gilmore, Founder and Managing Director of W!ZARD Radio Media
This evening was Roman Armstrong’s final radio show on W!ZARD Radio Station.
Our second-longest running presenter (after only myself), Roman has been an anchor through all of the amazing change and growth this coming has gone through over the past nearly 6 years he has been broadcasting with us.
What started (and continued) as two hours of fun, mischief and ridiculousness on a Sunday evening has led to some of my greatest memories and one of my best friends. The ending of Roman’s radio show was long-anticipated and was mutually agreed earlier this summer.
I am lucky to call Roman a close friend, someone who I know I will be speaking to as we both get old, and one of the most talented people I may ever know.
Moving forward, Roman Armstrong will continue to be an important part of the W!ZARD Radio Media family and we are excited to continue making new memories and exciting moments with him in the future.
From Sunday 24th September, fresh face Meagan Berneaud will be hosting Sundays, 6pm to 8pm (UK) with a brand new show!
Listen below to the final moments of Roman's final radio show from this evening.
Broadcasted exclusively worldwide on W!ZARD Radio Station.
