Former radio presenter at Yfm, Joel Orleans has admitted that he feels gutted by his dismissal at Yfm after years of dedicated service.
Joel was fired along with Ms Naa, Agnes Ntow, Blackboy, Killerfingerz, Joel Orleans and DJ Snoop by YFm in what is believed to be a massive clearout as financial difficulties hit mainstream electronic media, also reinforced by Coronavirus.
Sounding very disappointed with the turn of event, the former Drive Time host said he’s really pained by the move to axe all established presenters from the media establishment after years of their loyalty to the brand.
“I’d be lying if I said I ain’t gutted about the exit, but everything happens for a reason. I strongly believe that this is not the end but the beginning of greater things to come. It’s time for others to get the opportunities we had when we started. I fully support that cause.”
Wishing the new radio generation the best. It’s gonna be hard. You’ll be used and unappreciated. But that comes with the job. Always keep your head up and push for what’s right and don’t apologize for it.”
He however used the opportunity to thank YFM for unearthing him.
“Would like to Thank you @Y1079FM for all the years. Without you I wouldn’t be who I am today. Thanks for the opportunity to prove myself and tbh I Had a great ride. Wish you all the best. No hard feelings. We did it. Love Joel.”
