BBC RADIO SHEFFIELD midday personality GARETH EVANS has exited the station after being suspended for allegedly threatening a local council with bad on-air publicity over a parking ticket, reports the SHEFFIELD TELEGRAPH.
EVANS allegedly told the BASSETLAW DISTRICT COUNCIL that he would criticize them on the air after his wife's LAND ROVER was ticketed for taking two parking spaces, and also posted details about the case on his FACEBOOK page.
The BBC said that it has ended its contract with EVANS' production company PARSLEY PYJAMAS LTD.
