Please find below a statement from Robin Galloway and Pure Radio:
Pure Radio apologise unreservedly for what was said by our presenter, who broadcasts as ‘The Shy Guy’, at 00:37 in the early hours of Tuesday morning. We deeply regret what was said on air and we wish to send our apologies to anyone who was offended by what was said. It falls way below our high broadcasting standards.
The apology made at the time by the shy guy was inadequate. It did not identify specifically what he said wrong and it bore no relationship to the Pure Radio ethos.
Due to the ongoing internal investigation on the matter we cannot comment further on the specifics of the offending phrase however we can promise that the appropriate action will be taken once the review has reached its conclusion.
Finally, Pure Radio would be more than happy to accommodate the presenter involved in this incident on one of our courses designed to help people understand why this kind of content is unacceptable.
Group Head of Presentation
