Annie Mac Is Leaving BBC Radio 1 After 17 Years
In a poignant explanation, the 42-year-old explained that it is “difficult to articulate what this job has meant to me.
Of the responsibility of dealing with these more powerful songs, which can stay with you and let your emotions rise.
“I’ve never walked out of the studio, feeling lighter and happier than I did when I walked in.”
Asked inevitably why she wanted to leave, Annie says, “I need more time to have my kids in the evenings, now that they’re both in school. I’d have more time to write fiction and create podcasts.”
I also love the idea of leaving the party (and I’m not wrong working at Radio 1 feels like a party) with a huge smile on my face.
Promising to return to radio broadcasting when the time is right, he thanked the fans, collaborators and artists who attended his shows.
“It’s very inspiring, to have seen talent grow and take control over their careers. On my Radio 1 team who have worked so hard and have held up so well.”
“And most importantly to each of them, who are established on my shows. In my time at Radio 1, I’m out of love, the house has moved, the career ladder has climbed, I’ve married and become a mother twice.”
“Thank you for allowing me to live in your life. Thank you, thank you, thank you for listening.”
The BBC has announced his farewell, in the framework of an adjustment of the station, said the BBC:
“Annie has a lot of incredible moments on BBC Radio 1 fascinated by the live sessions to the views with the world’s greatest artists. We send all our love, appreciation and good luck for Annie’s future.”
