Veteran Hip Hop DJ Tim Westwood has been “sacked” from 1xtra’s Drivetime show.
The 54-year-old DJ, who holds the weekday slot between 4-7pm, tweeted this afternoon,
I’m very excited about being given the opportunity to speak to the nation for five days a week and for the faith put in me by the Radio 1Xtra team
Fans have since flooded Twitter to send career condolences to the much-hated yet much-loved DJ.
Tim Westwood began his spate in the primetime slot of 1xtra in 2009.
Changes will take effect from 3 September.
