Premier Christian Radio/London morning personality John Pantry announces his retirement after 24 years behind the mic. Pantry is the longest-serving national breakfast radio presenter in Britain with his “Inspirational Breakfast” going on the air 24 years ago in June 1995.

Peter Kerridge, CEO of Premier Christian Radio says, “John Pantry is a living legend. He has been an integral part of the Premier family for the past 24 years and we are hugely grateful for the contribution he has given to so many during that time. To have become the country’s longest serving national breakfast radio presenter, is just an incredible achievement. His loyalty and ability to empathize with the audience will make him very difficult to replace.”
