GCAP Alternative XFM/U.K. drivetime DJ IAN CAMFIELD, who has been with the station since it launched 10 years ago, is leaving to join CBS Alternative WXRK (92.3 K-ROCK)/NEW YORK, reports THE GUARDIAN. XFM said CAMFIELD would continue to contribute to the station from the U.S. The station added that his replacement would be announced "in due course".
"Leaving the weekday XFM schedule was a hard decision to make as I believe XFM is in the best position it has been in for 10years," said CAMFIELD. "On the other hand I am of course extremely excited about being able to realize my dream of broadcasting in the UNITED STATES while still maintaining my links with XFM in the U.K."
XFM's PD ADAM UYTMAN added, "We all know that opportunities like this don't come along very often and we are pleased that we are in a position where we can support him with his future plans. IAN has played a big part in XFM's history and we are looking forward to continuing our relationship with him -- just from further afield."
