Ra­dio man­ager steps down

The Oban Times - - News -

THE MAN­AGER of a lo­cal com­mu­nity ra­dio sta­tion has stepped down af­ter 12 years.

David Ogg held his fi­nal show on Ne­vis Ra­dio on Fri­day De­cem­ber 30 and to­mor­row (Jan­uary 6) will be his last of­fi­cial day with the com­pany.

An­nounc­ing the news last Thurs­day, Ne­vis Ra­dio re­vealed that as a com­pany and char­ity it had been look­ing at op­tions to make it­self more fi­nan­cially vi­able and has held numer­ous meet­ings and business re­views. Fol­low­ing one of th­ese re­views, David put in for vol­un­tary re­dun­dancy be­liev­ing it was in the com­pany’s best in­ter­ests that he should move on.

A spokesper­son from the com­pany said: ‘Fol­low­ing care­ful con­sid­er­a­tion and seek­ing business and le­gal ad­vice, the board at Ne­vis Ra­dio ac­cepted David’s of­fer.’

The com­pany added that David’s de­par­ture is go­ing to leave a big void and ex­pressed sin­cere thanks for his ser­vice and the skills that he shared. Friends and lis­ten­ers of the sta­tion took to Face­book to pass on their well wishes.

Un­der the Ne­vis Ra­dio user name, the com­pany sought to re­as­sure lis­ten­ers who were con­cerned about a pos­si­ble feud be­tween David and Ne­vis Ra­dio by post­ing: ‘It is vi­tally im­por­tant for peo­ple to un­der­stand there is no ill-feel­ing here, de­spite some of the ru­mours that have grown arms and legs, and we wish David all the best for his fu­ture ven­tures.’
