BBC Radio 2 continuity announcer and newsreader Alan Dedicoat is leaving BBC Radio 2 after 28 years.

Alan joined the BBC in 1979 at Radio Birmingham before moving to BBC Radio Devon in 1983. He then went straight to Radio 2 in London and over the years has read the news on Wake Up to Wogan, Vanessa Feltz, Sarah Kennedy and this week he will read his last bulletins on his current shift, from 10am to 5pm.

He leaves this Friday, and speaks to Trevor Dann on The RadioToday Programme tomorrow where the 60 year old says he’s getting old and ready to take a break, although he’ll carry on voicing the Lottery and Strictly. Listen out for it tomorrow at
