Mark Lawson has stepped down from Radio 4’s Front Row after 16 years. He has been rested on medical grounds for the past month.
The official story is full of smoke, mirrors and lawyer-proofed hints. The decision for Mark to leave was ‘a joint agreement with the BBC’.
I have known Mark for all the time he has been on Front Row and never had anything but agreeable experiences with him. At 52, he is a gifted commentator and interviewer who will soon find other outlets for his proven skills.
