Statement From Radio Live And Martin Devlin

Martin Devlin has decided to leave Radio Live and his resignation is effective immediately. Martin has been with the station for over two years. He helped set up the talk network and has hosted the Breakfast show for two years.

“I’ve learned a huge amount and am really grateful for the opportunity to have spent time doing ‘hard news’ but I have to say that I really don’t enjoy it”, said Martin.

“News is serious, is taken seriously and I think most people believe it should be presented seriously and I’m just not that guy.”

Martin plans to take some time off, having spent the last 16 years getting up at 4am to present morning radio shows.

Radio Live would like to make it clear that previous comments attributed to it in the ‘NZ Herald’ suggesting that Martin Devlin had poor ratings were inaccurate and untrue and not at all relevant to the reason for his resignation.

Both parties agree that unfortunately it just hasn’t worked out and it’s both responsible and appropriate to acknowledge this and move on. Martin Devlin wishes Radio Live the very best and says he worked with some very talented and professional people during the last two years. Radio Live wishes Martin the best for his future career, whatever form it takes.
