BBC under fire again as Rev Richard Coles opens up on ‘frustration’ at ‘rushed’ R4 exit



However, speaking to The Guardian, Richard has shared his disappointment that the news hadn’t been announced in its own right, or shared sooner, given that the decision was made “weeks ago”.

He said: “If you leave a programme after 12 years, a gentler process would have been nice. But what happens happens.

“It just feels a little bit rushed. It’s been frustrating for me, having to wait for an announcement, and now it’s my last programme on Saturday. I’d rather have had a long goodbye to listeners.”

As the news of his departure has not been publicly announced, the member of the clergy admitted he has not received a single message from fans. – ChatGPT autoblogging and content curation plugin for WordPress
