Tbo Touch has resigned from Metro FM.

In a move that is bound to shock the radio station’s legions of followers, the popular DJ handed in his resignation in a letter dated June 21. According to our sources, the broadcaster is trying to manage the process and keep the information quiet for now. Tonight has, however, seen the letter, which was leaked to us. In it, the usually animated Touch wished his former employers well and stated that he hoped to leave his position without any “animosity”.

“Please accept this letter as my formal resignation from Metro FM,” the letter reads.

“After 11 years of professional radio and a great journey, I want to take this opportunity to thank SABC for the time and efforts in building my radio and TV career.

“I pride myself to be counted among a great team of broadcasters that has graced this corporation. I will forever be grateful for all the lessons and accomplishments Metro FM has afforded me.

“I wish to leave Metro FM on good terms with no animosity within 30 days of this submission.

“I wish management well and best in all they pursue.

Sincerely, your Boy

Mr Thabo T-Bo Touch Molefe”
