July Exit For Jonathan Ross From BBC
April 13, 2010 at 4:29 AM (PT)
British TV/radio personality JONATHAN ROSS says he is eager for his contract with the BBC to end in JULY, reports UPI.COM. ROSS made headlines last year when he and comedian RUSSELL BRAND played an on-air radio prank and left obscene messages regarding ANDREW SACHS's 23-year-old granddaughter on the actor's voice-mail.
The bit prompted BRAND's resignation, ROSS's suspension for 90 days and the departure of a BBC controller.
"The whole place has changed quite dramatically," ROSS told THE GUARDIAN newspaper. "The people running it are always trying to second-guess what the newspapers will say."
