U.K. Host Allan Lake Launches Internet Show
July 17, 2009 at 5:38 AM (PT)
Former U.K. national Rock station ABSOLUTE RADIO personality ALLAN LAKE is launching a new nightly show in the Internet starting MONDAY (7/20). LAKE was let go from ABSOLUTE RADIO for talking about quitting smoking with an "e-cigarette," comments which apparently violated OFCOM rules.
LAKE, who claims to have been fired 13 times on terrestrial radio including high profile axings at GALAXY/MANCHESTER and RED DRAGON RADIO/CARDIFF, WALES, said, "After years of bouncing around the country being told I’m going too far and taken off the air, I know I have finally found the right place for me. The internet gives me the freedom of speech that every broadcaster deserves. I’m excited to do this, I’m always brought into a new radio station to be the ‘outrageous’ jock, but after a while the management always lose their bottle, I know from the years that I’ve been doing this that people want to hear real talk from real people, real opinions and no holds barred!"
The new show will be heard on www.Allanlake.co.uk weekday nights at 7pm starting on MONDAY; LAKE also plans to add celebrity presenters to the stream.
