Kiss DJ David Rodigan has resigned from the station following his hour-long 11pm Sunday show’s move to a midnight slot.

Rodigan, who has worked at Kiss for 22 years, is renowned for his knowledge of reggae music and saw the move as a “continued marginalisation” of the genre.

In a statement he said: “Reggae is worthy of more respect and so are the fans and lovers of this music,” and said the change “left me no option but to make a stand for my passion”.

Rodigan was inducted into the Sony Radio Academy Hall Of Fame in 2005 and was made an MBE in the 2012 New Year Honours for services to broadcasting.

Earlier this year he won his third Sony Award for a separate programme he presents on BBC Radio 2.

A statement from Kiss said they were “very sad and disappointed” to confirm Rodigan’s departure.

The station, which is owned by Bauer Media, said it remained “passionate about broadcasting a brilliant cross section of music genres, including reggae”.
