Kiss 100

A Late Night Drunken Kiss

Robin Banks is back on his drivetime show at London dance station Kiss 100 following suspension. Banks was suspended after he invaded the studios in a drunken state in the early hours of the morning and took the pre-recorded programming off the air. Worse was to follow as he launched into a live session full of swearing which led listeners to ring the station and complain.
Banks has a history of causing offence. Four years ago, whilst with Virgin Radio, the Radio Authority upheld a serious complaint over a ‘deeply offensive’ comment made by the presenter. Banks said on air, after he’d heard a story about a man who choked to death: “Too bad he wasn’t a woman or gay.”
He was eventually fired by Virgin Radio following his announcement that Chris Evans was dead.
