Editor's Viewpoint: Big man is smaller
The 'Big Man' of local broadcasting is back, but he is not quite as big as he was.
Stephen Nolan, whose television show returns to our screens this week, has already lost four stones in less than two months. We may also see less of him this year in another way, as he plans to retreat regularly to his California home to help him avoid over-work, with the resultant danger of burnout.
He is wise to do so, because other broadcasting figures have destroyed themselves by working too hard. Yet even if we see less of Stephen this year. we will still respect him as one of the best, and controversial, broadcasters in our land.
