Sinn Féin MP Elisha McCallion has called on the BBC to review its decision to cancel the Sean Coyle Show.
The Foyle MP said:
“Sean Coyle was a big voice in the north west and across the north for over 30 years.
“His daily programme – which was an institution – was a familiar friend particularly for older people, whether solo or with his friend Gerry Anderson.
“The decision to remove the show will have came as a great shock to many, many people and has renewed concerns about stripping services at Radio Foyle.
“I would urge BBC to immediately review this decision.” Críoch/Ends
