BBC Ulster Host Back After Flap Over Article
November 11, 2005 at 7:14 AM (PT)
BBC RADIO ULSTER afternoon host GEORGE JONES has returned to the air after a one day hiatus prompted by an article in the BELFAST TELEGRAPH in which he complained about the cancellation of his show effective next JUNE.
JONES sat out WEDNESDAY's show (10/9), replaced by RALPH MCLEAN, when management saw the emotional article in which JONES said of BBC management "(i)t is clear that they just don't want me anymore....it's difficult losing your job when you are in the public eye and at the moment I am suffering from a great lack of confidence. I have started to doubt myself." JONES told the paper that he may have to sell his house as a result of the pending job loss.
