A great loss to Radio 2 & it is a shame that many great presenters have now left due to new management. It is for these reasons that I now mainly listen to @greatesthitsuk , as I like listening to the excellent @simonmayo , @markgoodier , Pat Sharp & @richardallinson 📻 🎙 😉👍
 
In reply to @thehuwedwards
Such a big mistake by the beeb - I don’t think @BBCRadio2 realised just how loved #SteveWrightInTheAfternoon is - hopefully the Big Show moves to another broadcaster 🤞
 
In reply to @thehuwedwards
Is there nothing anyone can do? None of us want #stevewrightintheafternoon to end. Can no one talk to the powers that be about this ridiculous decision? #savestevewrightintheafternoon #stevewright
 
In reply to @thehuwedwards
The very best. A terrible error to get rid of his afternoon show, when he’s so popular and still at the top of his game.
 
In reply to @thehuwedwards
It just won’t be the same, no Steve wright in the afternoon, such a bad move to get rid of him and his show. BBC radio 2 was the best but I think those days have gone as from today
 
In reply to @thehuwedwards
Yeah thanks BBC, butchered local radio and alienated the older generation and now you're doing the same with Radio 2.
 
In reply to @thehuwedwards
Fed up the BBC ignores listeners of a certain generation. Simon Mayo and Steve Wright were excellent and accompanied me on long commutes.
 
In reply to @thehuwedwards
The end of an brilliant era! #SteveWrightInTheAfternoon has kept us all going bringing great music, fun, laughs, and a bit of Steve too, what a legend. We love you steve,will be miss you greatly x
 
In reply to @thehuwedwards
No radio 2 on my dashboard any more, radio 2 has now become a chatter noise . Thank you steve, for all the serious jockin. No g.
 
In reply to @thehuwedwards
Wiped out a generation of listeners I Thought BBC were meant to cater for a broad range of listeners with intelligent knowledgeable broadcasters their loss it seems BBC in general has certainly gone GAGA
 
Steve Wright looks like someone drew Steven Seagal from memory.
 
In reply to @thehuwedwards
Why though Huw, what is the @bbc agenda in sacking a great broadcaster who people want to listen to. @MissHelenThomas
 
In reply to @thehuwedwards
The best of the best! Proper radio.
 
In reply to @thehuwedwards
The radio in the afternoons won’t be the same without #SteveWright he’ll be deeply missed.
 
 
In reply to @thehuwedwards
Other than the Jeremy Vine show ill be switching off Radio 2 now. Its become Radio 1 of the 90’s & 00’s which i hated.
 
In reply to @thehuwedwards
He will be greatly missed. What are they thinking of at @BBC2? Madness to drop the afternoon show.
 
In reply to @thehuwedwards
If he goes to Virgin for a afternoon slot then so do i
 
In reply to @thehuwedwards
The epitome of poor decision making with echo chamber management too proud to admit they've got it catastrophically wrong
 
This tweet has slightly messed with my sense of chronology.
 
In reply to @thehuwedwards
He shouldn't be kicked out the same as Steve, they should stay the same as Terry Wogan did then have studio's named after them ! SHOCKING 😡
 
In reply to @thehuwedwards
Does he still talk over records?
 
In reply to @thehuwedwards
Bad enough getting rid of him but replacing him with Scott mills!!!!!
 
In reply to @thehuwedwards
 
In reply to @thehuwedwards
Radio 1 then Radio 2 through my student days and now through the commute from work,will miss him
 
In reply to @thehuwedwards
The best. I shall miss him
 
In reply to @thehuwedwards
Have listened to SW on the radio since the 80s. Don’t understand why it’s the last but thanks for the memories & good luck. You are appreciated 🤩
 
 
In reply to @thehuwedwards
Top quality shows. I’ve grown old listening. Time to switch to a different station now.
 
In reply to @thehuwedwards
This guy is a true all round entertainer!! The hours I’ve spent driving in my car while listening to him !! He made me laugh, made me cry & kept me sane. #shameonbbc this is your biggest mistake #switchoffbbcradio2
 
When exactly did Steve Wright become Steven Segal?
 
In reply to @thehuwedwards
And v sad to see him finish. He’s the best
 
In reply to @thehuwedwards
Afternoon will not be the same mind move radio channels Radio channel. There was no need to take Steve off the sir. Who will be next Ken Bruce and pop masters
 
In reply to @thehuwedwards
Afternoons will never be the same
 
In reply to @thehuwedwards
End of an era from Sid the manager, Mr Spoons, Dr Fish Filleter; Mr Angry , Double glazing salesman and many more, the afternoon was Steve Wright.

Lama man. Lama man, does everything that a Lama can...
 
In reply to @thehuwedwards
Foundations rocked to the core. The Queen, the pound and now #SteveWrightInTheAfternoon. What woodentop chose wooden stump Scot Mills to fill the boots? Just watch GoodMorning Vietnam for comparison. Not funny. Thanks Steve .
 
 
 
In reply to @thehuwedwards
I still don't get it! For me it was the only thing that worked for radio 2. Without pop master I'm not sure bruce would work.
 
In reply to @thehuwedwards
Thank you so much for all the laughs in the afternoon a true professional and gentleman….look forward still to Sunday love songs ……No G silly boy 🙏
 
In reply to @thehuwedwards
Who tells the head of radio 2 that we want her to move aside to create a role for someone with leadership ability? This one was trained by Liz Truss.
 
 
In reply to @thehuwedwards
Just sooo sad Steve is no more on the radio 😢
 
In reply to @thehuwedwards
You are both so professional and brilliant at what you do.
 
In reply to @thehuwedwards
Used to listen at the hairdresser's as a child aged about nine. Now a lot older and will miss him as he's always been there. Wonderfully relaxing and warm show.
 
In reply to @thehuwedwards
The legendary 'Steve Wright ln The Afternoon' another great icon bows out, in this year of years. 🙌
 
He is indeed. Can’t believe he won’t be there anymore. We need folk like Steve more than anything in such dark times.
 
In reply to @thehuwedwards
So Sad about Steve leaving 😢 what a trooper he's been over 40 years.😍
 
 
In reply to @thehuwedwards
Hi Huw, I remember you doing Roundtable with SW on R2 alongside Ian & Jeanette Tough aka The Krankies.
 
In reply to @thehuwedwards
Still relevant and the BBC sacked him because of his age ? Shame on them
 
In reply to @thehuwedwards
From one Master Broadcaster to another…
 
 
He is the best. Radio 2 are ageist to get rid of Steve
 
 
In reply to @thehuwedwards
He's quite secretive though. Who knows what he got up to in the mornings!
 
In reply to @thehuwedwards
And his show never changed, became stale and Boring. Glad I stopped paying tv licence.
 
In reply to @thehuwedwards
He is a great broadcaster. Why didn’t they offer him something else.. stupid
 
 
In reply to @thehuwedwards
The best Steve. Good luck in the future
 
In reply to @thehuwedwards
Listened to Steve from his days on the Radio 1 breakfast show right up to his last day on Radio 2 on the afternoon show, my favourite segments were Ask Elvis. Not sure if we'll be listening to his replacement, I think listening numbers will fall dramatically
 
In reply to @thehuwedwards
Only time I missed listening regularly was when I was in the Falklands and Germany in the 90s, just seems that theirs a trend about getting rid of things not seen as trendy / woke or modern , top presenter going to be missed.
 
In reply to @thehuwedwards
Another woke axing on the age brigade station 🖕
 
In reply to @thehuwedwards
Listened to #stevewright with Mr Angry when I was a new student nurse back in 1981, great broadcasting 👏🏼👏🏼
 
In reply to @thehuwedwards
He’s having a coffee. No Tea
 
 
This indie chick will miss her Friday dose of serious jockin’ #guiltypleasure
 
 
Loved him on Radio 1 back in the day!

What a guy 🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩
 
In reply to @thehuwedwards
Absolutely gutted that he has gone . Same when Simon Mayo left. Ken Bruce is the only one worth listening to now. I am now converting to Radio Wales . Wyn Evans,😅 hilarious 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿
 
In reply to @thehuwedwards
 
A great broadcaster- why loose him?
 
In reply to @thehuwedwards
They don’t like fielding that’s the bottom line
 
In reply to @thehuwedwards
He will be greatly missed
 
In reply to @thehuwedwards

In reply to @thehuwedwards
Could not stand the one trick pony.

In reply to @thehuwedwards
Makes it look easy. End of an era. Sad day.
 
In reply to @thehuwedwards
 
In reply to @thehuwedwards
Missing him already and just when you need something constant and upbeat
 
In reply to @thehuwedwards
41 yrs...41yrs..scandalous decision..The guy deserves better...WOKES
 
In reply to @thehuwedwards
steve wright 275 and 285 steve wright on national radio
 
 
 
In reply to @thehuwedwards
Why are radio 2 trying to attract a younger audience? That’s what radio 1 is for! Radio 2 is exactly for the audience demographic that Steve attracts! 🤬
 
In reply to @thehuwedwards
Did he get pushed out?
