Capital Breakfast host Dave Berry has decided to leave the station after five years to take up a new post at Absolute Radio.
The DJ announced that he will not be renewing his contract when it expires this year, as he transfers to Absolute Radio to present a daytime show.
Berry said: “Ten years ago I got my first job in radio on Capital. I’ve had an amazing time – it really is the best job in the world waking up my fellow Londoners, and working with George and Lilah has been loads of fun.
“I’ll miss our lovely listeners and everyone here at Capital a huge amount. I’m leaving to pursue some of my other passions and it’s safe to say I’ll be walking away with some incredible memories.”
Ashley Tabor, Capital’s managing editor, said: “Dave has been an absolutely fantastic host on Capital breakfast. After five years of getting up at 4am, he’s decided the time is right. We thank him for his service at the top of commercial radio and we wish him all the best for the future.”
Global will be making an announcement in the near future as to who will replace Berry in the role.
