The final broadcast is approaching for a woman who has been a fixture on Ulster’s airwaves for decades.
Candy Devine is expected to make her last transmission on Saturday, September 28.
As reported earlier this year, she is leaving the Province to return to her native Australia.
She has worked consistently at Downtown Radio ever since it was founded.
Eddie West, programme controller for the station, told the News Letter the date was now set for her farewell show.
“We’ll miss her – Candy’s been with us since 1976 and has been a great lady throughout her broadcasting career,” he said.
“She’s been the ultimate professional. She has a great, wide knowledge of music, and is absolutely adored by listeners. But I think they understand she wants to go home.”
It is understood a special event is planned for closer to the time, but he was reluctant to give details.
Candy first came to Ulster as a club compere in 1969 and married husband Donald McLeod the following year.
Meanwhile, in other changes Mr West said the station’s George Jones will soon be moving time slots. He is expected to move from drivetime (4pm to 7pm) to an earlier afternoon slot (2pm to 4pm).
The change will kick in from September 2, said Mr West, adding it would allow more listeners to call in to the show than during the drivetime hours.
