Terry Christian loses appeal

The Manchester Evening News has reported that TV and radio presenter Terry Christian has failed in his legal action against the BBC over the loss of his presenting role on BBC Radio Manchester.

Christian, who was being paid almost £100,000 a year, claimed that he had been unfairly dismissed after the station did not renew his contract in April. But Judge Murray Creed ruled against the 45 year old, saying that he was hired by the station as a self-employed freelance and was not a permanent employee.
Creed also rejected Christian’s claims that he was controlled by BBC management and given detailed scripts on how to conduct interviews. The judge also noted that Christian had a show on talkSPORT at the same time and undertook promotional work for his autobiography, My Word.
