Last week news of Tim Westwood’s sacking from his Radio 1Xtra drivetime show sent shockwaves through the UK urban industry and across the pond.
The veteran DJ is being replaced by Saturday morning DJ Charlie Sloth from September, but will keep his Saturday night show as well as his consolation prize being a brand new Sunday night show. How nice.
Despite this, the 54-year-old DJ told Pappzd what he thought of the affair:
I think I was treated unfairly… I don’t know why, they just don’t want me, I’ve still got my Saturday show but I’m gutted.
However we wouldn’t be too gutted if we were him as he has megastars such as Nicki Minaj reaching out to him and telling him to go to the USA!
Seize the opportunity while you can Westwood.
