3AW's Ernie Sigley will leave full-time radio in around six weeks. The 70 year old radio veteran who got his start on Melbourne's 3DB over 55 years ago told 3AW of his decision yesterday.
Sigley's ratings took a 1.8 point slide in the most recent survey which gave him around 8.8 points of the market, something not seen on 3AW afternoons for quite some time.
He initially came to 3AW in 1996 to fill in for Caroline Wilson who previously presented afternoons, it was while Caroline was on maternity leave Sigley was made full-time.
At this stage it has been suggested he may return to do fill in shifts on 3AW in 2009.
