BBC Breakfast presenter Jon Kay, 51, took to Twitter and penned a heartfelt farewell to his colleague who announced they were quitting the Beeb after 31 years. Sarah Ransome shared she is leaving the BBC in a candid message.

Sarah, who is a Network Correspondent on BBC Radio 5 Live, announced her departure today.

In view of her 1,728 followers, the TV journalist admitted it had been a “privilege” to work for the BBC.

She began: “1/2 After 31 yrs with BBC News, it’s time for someone else to have a turn. From Local Radio, R5live to Network Correspondent – it’s been a blast!

“Huge thanks to everyone who’s trusted me to tell their stories – to all colleagues and contacts & special thanks to my lovely SW [south west] team.”

Sarah continued: “2/2 I’ve had a ringside seat to some of the most amazing stories in the SW.

“And some of the most awful. It’s been a privilege to have been there & to work for the BBC.

“I’m going to miss it. I may be leaving the job but not the memories. Time for new adventures! Onwards & upwards.” (sic)

The journalist was swiftly inundated with messages, as people offered their well wishes.

Jon retweeted Sarah’s farewell message on his Twitter account, in view of his 37,000 followers.

He wrote: “‘Not another one!’ as someone once said [Winking face emoji]

“We are all going to miss @Sarah_Ransome so, so much. The kindest, loveliest friend and team player you can possibly imagine – and a cracking reporter. @bbc5live @BBCSpotlight @BBCDevon @BBCCornwall @BBCNews.”

Twitter user Tanya Hines penned: “All the best Sarah! Remember those early days of Five Live.”

The former Breakfast host announced she was stepping down from her role in the summer.

Jon tweeted: “Was bursting to say something out loud this morning but she swore me to secrecy!

“So pleased @sallynugent has been confirmed as a permanent host on @BBCBreakfast. A great journo, she’s clever, funny, warm and a real team player.” (sic)
