He explained: “I have a little announcement, and it’s really strange to say it out loud.” Really weird. If I’m being totally honest, I have no idea how to start this.

‘I’m just going to come out and say it. This will be my last six weeks in capital, which is strange to say.

Shaking off his emotions, he continued: “The last eight and a half years of my life have been incredible being part of this machine, it has been the funniest, the saddest and the wildest time being part of Capital and the Global family.” . .

‘When you set out to do a job of this magnitude you never think that one day the moment will come when you will have to say goodbye. You never think that day will come.

‘What I can tell you is that I’m not saying goodbye now, I’m not leaving the program today and that’s it, but it’s not very far away.

‘It will come and that goodbye will come in five or six weeks. It is not a decision that has been made overnight, it is enormous, it has not been easy for me.’

Roman lost his best friend and global radio producer Joe Lyons to suicide in August 2020, and the star hinted at the tragedy by referring to both his “highest highs” and his “absolute lowest lows.”

And he added: ‘Capital is my family, you, as wonderful listeners that you have been, have been with me in my best moments and in my worst moments… Capital and Global have helped change me.
