Graham Torrington, once voice of 'Late Night Love', to retire from BBC WM

RADIO presenter Graham Torrington has announced plans to retire from his BBC WM show.

The voice of ‘late night love’ in the West Midlands, Graham Torrington’s career of nearly 40 years will end as he retires to Spain.

Graham has presented BBC WM’s late show for the past eight years. He had spells with BRMP in the 1980s, Kix 96 in Coventry and over a decade presenting Late Night Love on the One Network.

Speaking to RadioToday, he said: “I have decided that after 37 years of continuous daily radio shows, it’s time to move on at the end of my contract in late October. The world of media has changed tremendously over the past five years and I fully understand that BBC Local Radio needs to radically change to compete in the future.

“Following a recent BBC announcement, I feel this is the right time to end my career in radio as I always said I wanted it to be my decision. I have had a tremendous time doing what I love best and will miss radio but it really is time for a change.

“I wish the entire radio industry great success in the future and I have loved being part of you. Later this year, I will be moving to Barcelona (the second love of my life) and I look forward to living in a fantastic part of the world.”

After starting out at BRMB in the 80s, Graham moved to Buzz FM in 1993 and then Coventry’s Kix 96 before his notable 12 year spell hosting Late Night Love on the GWR/GCap network.
