5FM has just announced that, after 10 years on air, Gareth Cliff will be leaving the station at the end of March 2014 - today.
Cliff and 5FM are parting ways after "an exceptional journey" says the station, as Cliff will be pursuing further opportunities in his personal capacity.
"5FM is enormously appreciative of Gareth's incredible work ethic, his dedication to his listeners and support of the 5FM brand. The station thanks Gareth for his exceptional ten years of on-air presence as well as being an ambassador for the station, we wish him the very best in future," says 5FM's programming manager Tim Zunckel.
Cliff commented, "I've had an amazing decade at 5FM together with my "one-of-kind" team and I have loved every minute. The journey has been an unforgettable one but I'm excited about the future".
Adds 5FM's Zunckel, "It has been a pleasure working with Gareth. He has been a huge asset to the 5FM team and we will miss him as an on-air personality and part of the brand. We're excited about the new line-up and will be announcing as to what listeners can expect in the near future."
