Here’s what happened

RedFM’s Izzy Showbizzy announced in an Instagram post that she’s stepping down from her evening slot on the station. Izzy will remain with RedFM as a presenter on the weekend schedule but she’s exploring other media opportunities now as well.

It was such a hard decision to make but my work life, like the rest of us, has changed ALOT in the past year which has opened up new opportunities in all medias, all of which I will be pursuing. I’ll also be joining The ECHO team and getting involved with my fitness career. So basically, what I’m trying to say is (if you’re still with me is) that I’m trying to do it ALL!! 😂😂and why not?

Very best of luck to Izzy for the future from us here at Radio Land.

Finally this week, 2FM is giving away a holiday to Zante in Greece. The competition is taking place on Instagram in association with TUI.

It’s been interesting to see the rise of competitions on social media in 2021 and we can only hope this helps bring in some extra cash for stations in 2022.
