Tim Westwood "sacked" from Radio 1Xtra Drivetime slot

Recommended Posts

Tim Westwood has announced that he is leaving his Radio 1Xtra Drivetime show.

Hip-hop DJ Westwood claimed that he has been "sacked" from the weekday 4pm-7pm slot, which he has held since September 2009.

Westwood wrote on Twitter: "It's official I've lost my afternoon voice due to schedule changes I will not be presentin 1Xtra Mon-Fri 4-7pm from Sept."

The veteran star then elaborated: "I've been sacked from 1Xtra Mon-Fri 4-7pm from sept #Westwoodyourfired. I don't like gettin fired #Westwoodyourefired - 1Xtra."

The 54-year-old will not be leaving Radio 1 Xtra completely, however. Westwood will continue to present his Saturday night show simulcast on Radio 1 and Radio 1Xtra.

The BBC has also announced that Westwood will front a new Sunday evening programme between 7pm and 9pm.

DJ Charlie Sloth will replace Westwood on Drivetime from September.

Radio 1 are proper trying to groom Sloth to be Westwoods eventual replacement. All he does is shout, mad annoying.

Westwood is cool, but allow firing him and not getting a black DJ to replace him. Another sample of racism! Trying to say black ain't good for drive time.
