BBC Radio Kent's Clare McDonnell is axed
Have just heard that BBC Radio Kent Breakfast Show presenter, Clare McDonnell is about to become a victim of the BBC cuts. Clare is co-host of the station's popular show with John Warnett. I'm told that Clare is the only person to lose their job at BBC Kent.
This seems a real shame. Take a look at the gender imbalance of the station. On air across a week on BBC Radio Kent you'll hear 25 male presenters and 3 female, Clare, Jules and Laura who's on with Pat Marsh
How many women hold managerial positions at the station?
Kent is now the 5th most listened to BBC local radio in station in the country and here they are sacking one of their key presenters on the breakfast show.
