JOEY ABELS DEPARTS FROM W!ZARD RADIO STATION
W!ZARD RADIO STATION ANNOUNCES THAT LONG-TIME PRESENTER, JOEY ABELS, WILL BE LEAVING THE BROADCASTING OUTLET ON FRIDAY 27TH FEBRUARY.
23 FEB – Joey joined W!ZARD Radio Station in September 2012 hosting his own Saturday afternoon show, before a 3 month hiatus when he rejoined presenting the Friday evening Rock Show from February 2013.
Talking about his 2 year and 6 month stint on-air, Joey says: “I have had a great couple of years here at W!ZARD Radio Station. I leave with fun memories, new skills and lots of new pieces of rock trivia. The listeners have always readily engaged with me and that has been brilliant. I’d like to thank James Gilmore for giving me the chance to do this and not getting rid of me when I was rubbish at the beginning.”
Joey made note of his departure at the beginning of February to Station Managers – citing a variety of private reasons for his decision.
Following his final show, W!ZARD Radio Station will be broadcasting a new radio series through-out March called, “In Concert with...” where full-length concert recordings will be broadcasted. This is a spin-off from a feature of the same name from Joey Abels’ show where he used to play 25 minute clips from rock concerts.
Managing Director, James Gilmore, comments: “Joey’s departure launches a new development plan at the radio station leading up to major changes around our 5th Birthday in April. This is only the first of many changes taking place to secure W!ZARD Radio Station’s future in the international media industry”.
He continues, “We wish Joey Abels much success in the future in whichever direction he chooses to go in. For now our focus is on the bright future of the radio station, which has a very busy year ahead”.
Joey Abels’ final radio show will be broadcasted this coming Friday (27th February) from 8pm to 10pm (UK time) on www.wizardradio.co.uk/listen.
