TalkSport DJ Tommy Boyd has been fired after failing to block on-air remarks from a caller who said he would like to shoot the royal

family, just hours after the death of the Queen Mother.


The former children's TV presenter and his production team were this week informed they had lost their jobs at the station, which is owned by Kelvin MacKenzie, the former Sun editor.

A spokesman for the radio station confirmed the decision, adding: "It's very unfortunate, but we had no choice."


The Radio Authority received a complaint from a listener to the live broadcast who heard a man call for the royal family to be shot.


Boyd, his producer and technical operative sat speechless after the caller - who claimed to be a republican - said he would like to "shoot the f***ing lot of them", on the Sunday night following the announcement of the death of the Queen Mother.
