Former DJ reportedly wins first round in tribunal claim against Radio Clyde

A FORMER DJ on Radio Clyde has reportedly won the first round in an employment tribunal.

Reports The Herald today, Adrian Coll was told in November two years ago that he was no longer required at Clyde 1.

He is said to be claiming age discrimination, but the station’s owners, Bauer Media, is reportedly countering that it didn’t employ him because he was freelance.

Adds Herald reporter, Ashlie McAnally, Coll is the matchday announcer at Ibrox stadium, home of Rangers FC.

McAnally continues: “After a pre-hearing review at the Glasgow tribunal offices yesterday, Mr Coll and former colleague, Kevin Cameron, who is also claiming unfair dismissal, won their first legal battle after a judge ruled their grievances should be heard and a tribunal will now take place.

“At the hearing, it was heard that George Bowie, Suzie McGuire and Mike Riddoch are the only DJs who are recognised employees, with all the others being freelance presenters.”
