The presenter will move on at the end of this month

Laura Woods will leave her role as the host of TalkSPORT’s breakfast show, they have confirmed.

Woods, who presents the show from Monday-Wednesday, will officially leave on Wednesday June 28.

In an emotional statement, she said: “You lot, our listeners, have given me so much comfort and guided me through some of my toughest moments, without even realising it.

“So I wanted to thank you personally for that. I will miss it dearly. Even the Spurs fans.

“For what feels like a lifetime I’ve been a listener of talkSPORT. For the last six years it’s been my home, where we get to spend our mornings talking about sport. There’s nothing better. I know I will never find a job like this. It’s unique. 

“Three years as the host of this amazing breakfast show, three bits of silverware for the trophy cabinet and record listening figures. I’m very proud of what we achieved here. One thing’s for sure: I will always be part of this family at talkSPORT.”

Head of TalkSPORT, Liam Fisher, added: “Her warmth, knowledge and love of sport have shone through and made her always connect with our 3.6 million weekly listeners.

“Her relationship with her fellow presenters like Ally McCoist and Gabby Agbonlahor and the galaxy of stars she has interviewed over the last three years as Breakfast host have created a fantastic listen every morning. I’m pleased that Laura will remain a part of the talkSPORT family.”

Reports have claimed that the presenter is set to replace Jake Humphrey as part of BT Sport’s rebranding to TNT Sports, which will launch next month.
