Brian Carlton quits his Tasmania Talks morning show
Veteran radio personality Brian Carlton has resigned from his award-winning Tasmania Talks morning talk show.
Carlton says he’s leaving for “personal reasons” and remains on “good terms” with the network.
“I’m grateful to the company for the opportunity to launch a talk show in Northern Tasmania,” said Carlton.
“I’ve become genuinely attached to my audience and the Tasmania Talks team. I appreciate the warmth and support I’ve received over the journey.
“I’m leaving for personal reasons and remain on good terms with Grant Broadcasters. My commitment, passion and belief in Tasmania remains unwavering.”
Tasmania Talks launched in September 2015 across five stations owned by Grant Broadcasters; 89.3 LAFM Launceston, 7SD 95.7 Scottsdale, 105.1 St Marys, 92.1 St Helens, 98.9 7AD Devonport, 100.9 7BU Burnie, and 7XS West Coast.
In a statement sent to media on Saturday (Oct 5), Tasmanian Broadcasters executive general manager Tim Holder confirmed that Carlton’s last shift will be on Friday, October 25.
“We understand Brian’s decision to move on and wish him well for the future,” added Holder.
“The company is appreciative of what Brian and his team has achieved, particularly in the area of service to the communities in which Tasmania Talks is broadcast.”
