Longers leaves top Irons podcast

JameslI have had the pleasure of appearing on the KUMB podcast on a couple of occasions with two great guys in Chris Scull and James Longman.

They’re top professionals and have brought a series of fabulous ‘broadcasts’ to Hammers fans  each week all with high good humour.

Hammers are written across their hearts and they have done the podcast proud so it was with sadness I read today that Longers is leaving the show. He joined the podcast when it first aired in 2013.

It would have had to have been a big gig to tempt him and it was. He’s to become producer of fellow Hammer James Corden’s The Late Late Show in Los Angeles and flies out to the US next month to take up his new role.

We wish him the very best and would like to say from all at ClaretandHugh he will be missed. His professionalism and the perfect chemistry between him and Chris is rarely found.

It’ll be a bit like Ant without Dec but an announcement of his replacement will be made apparently on next week’s show. Whoever it is, they have big boots to fill.

All the very best to you James!
