Outspoken radio presenter Nigel Pierce has blasted Good Hope FM after they apparently handed him a letter terminating his employment in front of staff, and locked him out of the SABC studios.
Listeners were taken by surprise when the popular jock did not go on air on Friday afternoon for his regular 3 to 6pm drive slot.
Nigel, whose payoff line is “I never can say goodbye”, wasn’t about to go down without a fight and decided to vent on social media.
In a series of videos posted to his account on Instagram over the weekend, Nigel said he was told he was an "unnecessary risk to the brand and reputation of GHFM and the SABC".
Fans soon reacted to the veteran radio personality's post, with many saying that they will no longer listen to radio station if Nigel is hosting. One Twitter user wrote: "Cheers GoodHope FM. Letting go of their best in Nigel Pierce is such a bad move. One by one your listeners will leave you. Only listened to GHFM because of Nigel..."
