Read’s career saw him win ten National Broadcaster of the Year Awards, and he has been a household name in Britain for over 40 years having fronted three top-rated long-running BBC TV series, Top of the Pops, Pop Quiz and Saturday Superstore.

He also hosted three national radio breakfast shows, including Radio One and Classic FM.

A spokesperson for K107fm said: “Whilst we continue to look to work with local volunteers and continue to bring home-grown talent to the air, we also have space to bring in other presenters.
