Geoff Field leaves 2Day FM

High profile news reader Geoff Field has left 2Day FM.

Field announced the news on social media this afternoon, telling his followers:

“I have left 2Day FM and I will be taking time out with Jason. Rest assured I’m OK, and once again thank you so much for your kindness over the years. I’m sorry I can’t reply, but I know you’ll understand…

“To the thousands of listeners, staff that I have respected and people that have supported me over the last 18 and a half years at 2Day FM, thank you. You have been so loyal and caring, and I will keep you posted as to my future now that I have left the station.”

Reminiscing on his 19 years in radio news earlier this year Field said in an article on radioinfo:

“I had five mainly good years on the Breakfast show, but in March 2010 things had changed. It wasn’t fun anymore. I decided never to work with either host again. The management moved me to the Hamish and Andy show which I loved, and before you ask: No, I never did do pants-off-Friday with the boys!”

His immediate plans are to take a break after almost twenty years on air in FM radio news.

Emma Freedman has been announced as the new afternoon newsreader for 2Day FM.
