Anton Savage has left Today FM and announced his departure via statement released on his twitter account earlier this afternoon.
In the statement he explained that himself and a team of others set out to create "a magazine show we could be proud of between 9 and 12 on Today FM".
He talked about the success of the show and thanked the creative, dedicated and hard-working team who won this year’s PPI award for Magazine Show of the Year.
However due to his objective for the show clashing with the new management’s objectives, he has decided to part ways with the station.
"We disagreed on a move to set music quotas, we disagreed on significant changes to the playlist, we disagreed on topics of discussion, on format, on choice of contributors and we disagreed on the choice of certain guests.
"It led to a situation where we have parted ways."
