Sports correspondent Richard Conway has announced he is leaving the BBC later this year.
“Some personal news – I’m leaving the BBC this summer after 8 amazing years reporting sports news,” Richard told his Twitter followers.
“Thank you for listening, watching and reading… and thank you to the many talented people I’ve worked with during my time here, it has been an honour.
I recently took an unexpected call from Anderlecht…
No, sorry, that’s someone else…
I’m setting up a strategic comms company, specialising in sport.
More on that later this year.
But it’s goodbye for now… leaving with incredible memories of a job I’ve truly loved. pic.twitter.com/4z6YnbZAaZ
