“I’m disappointed, but I will of course continue my day job doing Gift Grub on Ian Dempsey.”
Mario finished his statement by thanking the ‘Sunday Roast’ producers Patrick Haughey and Ruth Devaney, and said he “loved every minute of it”.
After sharing the news on Twitter, many listeners expressed their outrage over the decision.
One Twitter user wrote: “NO!!!! This was my Sunday morning listen while I was preparing the Sunday Roast at home (and podcasts if I missed it). What is with this Sunday morning slot?”
Another commented: “Sad to read this, loved tuning in on a Sunday morning, the variety of guests was refreshing. I especially loved the story behind the song segment! Don’t understand why they would cancel it. Hopefully we hear you present again soon!”
A third person wrote: “Disappointing to hear Mario. Show was one of my Sunday staples. Really enjoyed it. Someone doesn’t know when Todayfm are onto a good Sunday morning thing.”
