After a six year stint...

Dotty has confirmed she will be stepping down from 1Xtra.

The broadcaster joined the station in 2014, hosting a number of different shows and gathering fans with her excitable personality and thirst for new music.

Taking the reins of the Breakfast Show in July 2016, she's pushed it to a new level, pulling in over half a million listeners every day.

All good things come to an end, though, with Dotty confirming she intends to step down from the station in a few weeks.

Confirming her last show will be on July 30th, Dotty said...

"This week marks my four year anniversary on The 1Xtra Breakfast Show and it has been the most incredible experience of my life. But after almost 1000 early mornings, I think it’s finally time for me to turn off my alarm clock and rest."

"With more listeners tuning in to the show than ever and this year’s Radio Academy award for Best Breakfast Show sitting on my mantlepiece, it feels like the right time to end on a high note and say goodbye to the radio station that I love."

"Joining 1Xtra in 2014 changed my life, it’s here that I fell in love with broadcasting, spent my days with the most amazing listeners, made lifelong friends and even met Oprah."

"Thank-you to the many stars that have passed through the studio. To every single member of staff from the managers to the security guards. But most importantly to the listeners; thank you for inviting me into your homes, cars, building sites and barbershops. I’ve truly loved being part of your day. There’s nowhere in the world quite like 1Xtra but I look forward to what the future holds."
