Anton Savage has spoken out for the first time since it was revealed that he was sacked from Today FM just minutes after coming off air.

The seasoned broadcaster shocked fans on Friday afternoon when he released a statement announcing that he will no longer be presenting The Anton Savage Show due to a situation with Today FM bosses that resulted in them having to part ways.

According to The Irish Sun, Anton had been called into a meeting with Today FM boss Keith McCormack directly after he came off air and was told he had hosted his last show.

However, a station insider revealed that it wouldn’t have been a shock to Anton, as the writing was on the wall for some time.

“It couldn’t have been a surprise for Anton as there had been no negotiations to renew. The writing was on the wall.” they told the Irish Sun.

Ever since he made the announcement, the radio host has been inundated with support from fans and friends and today he took to Twitter to thank them for their unwavering support and he joked about looking for another job.

He also notably changed his Twitter bio, it now says, “Sooo… with no ‘show’, does this mean it’s personal?”

We here at VIP will really miss Anton on our airwaves, but we’ve no doubt he’ll be snapped up by another station very quickly!
