In April 1998, he rejected an opportunity to join new station Century Radio to stay with GMR.[1] Just a few months later, he left GMR in controversial circumstances with Reeve claiming he had been unfairly dismissed and had to explain complaints of "gratuitous use of racist language on and off-air."
