Breaking: Mary Anne Hobbs is leaving BBC Radio 1!

23 July, 2010 (15:16) | Mary Anne Hobbs | By: Core News

This is sad news. I just read on Twitter that Mary Anne Hobbs is leaving BBC Radio 1. Read her full statement on Myspace.

I really hope BBC gets a good replacement since the Experimental/Breezeblock show has been my favorite radio show for many year and it were the show that made me love dubstep.

Will you miss Mary Anne Hobbs?

Very sad news for the music community. Totally respect her decision. She will be sorely, sorely, sorely missed.

It would be very tough for BBC to find someone replacing her.

Some things happen for a reason.
The torch held for so long by Mary, will continue to burn ever brighter in the hands of Toddla-t whom I firmly believe shares the very same passion & dedication to the scene.
This is a very exciting time.
Mary has secured her shows legacy as well as Toddla’s future with Radio 1.
If fate exists, then this is destiny.
Respect and love!

Hey Dave.

I was under the impression that Benji B would take over the show in October. Do you have some new information?
