It has been reported that BBC Radio One DJ Chris Moyles is on the brink of leaving the station following secret talks with rival Capital FM.
The breakfast show host has been asked to join the station when it goes live across the nation next year.
This news comes just weeks after the 36-year-old had a 30-minute rant on air at BBC bosses, over his pay.
He raged: Im very, very angry at being put into this position. I cant tell you how furious I am. I havent been paid since the end of July and no one cares about it. No ones bothered.
Can you imagine if Terry Wogan had not got paid for two months, would you even think that would ever happen? It just wouldn't, would it? Do you ever think anyone would forget to pay Chris Evans for two months and nobody would panic about it?"
He told listeners that he thought about not coming in to present the show: Why should I come in? Its a two-way street. What annoys me is the fact I mentioned it to people this week.
Fix it, just get it fixed. Its a huge lack of respect and a massive FU to me
Moyles is said to be close friends with the CEO of Capital Radio and they used to share a flat.
A spokesman for the station denied that they were in talks with the DJ, but added: We would fully understand the attraction of joining Capital FM as it goes national in early January.
