Journalist Keiron Murdoch has resigned from his position as host of the popular Sunday program The Big Issues on Observer Radio
Murdoch posted on social media last night that “I have resigned from my position as host and producer of the Big Issues. I thank Observer for the opportunities it has afforded me over the years”
Murdoch’s resignation came just hours after he posted the lineup of his show on social media.
Prime Minister Gaston Browne was expected to form the last segment of the program to discuss cash handouts to residents
Murdoch said in a message to his guest that “the station leadership resolved to cancel the interview which I had booked with the PM, and to announce this evening that it had been canceled. I was unprepared to continue in the circumstances. Unfortunately this leaves you in a bit of a quandary as to what will take place tomorrow”
He wrote, “for this, I do sincerely apologize. I have left Observer with the script of tomorrow’s show mostly prepared, as well as all guest contact information. I imagine they will nominate someone to reach out to you directly. I will not be hosting tomorrow, however, as I am no longer an employee”.
