Boag heading home

A FORMER sports editor at BBC Scotland is returning to Scotland, after a short spell at Newcastle-based Metro radio station.

Gordon Boag was head of news at Glasgow-based SAGA 105.2FM – re-branded as Smooth after a take-over – following his stint at the BBC.

And it was in the wake of the take-over that he was appointed head of news and sport at Metro.

But with his six-month probation about to end, he has decided to return to Scotland, explaining the job wasn’t as he expected it to be.
