In a tweet today, Ray said: “Happy & sad to say we’re leaving 98 early mornings from January. We can FINALLY talk about it tomorrow morning, but it’s all good!”

Chief Executive of 98FM, Keith McCormack said: “On behalf of everyone here at 98FM I would like to thank Ray for his hard work and dedication to the station over the past three years. We will be launching a new show – ‘98FM’s Big Breakfast’ in January, which will continue to focus on playing the great music our listeners love and we will be announcing full details of that in the New Year.”

Ray added: “98FM has been a big part of my life for the past three years. I’ve been lucky to work with a really fantastic team each morning, and I would like to thank them for everything. With the end of the year just around the corner, the time feels right to make a change and I’m looking forward to new challenges and focusing on other things in 2016.”
