Magic AM has taken Dave LeeTravis "off air with immediate effect" following the DJ's arrest yesterday by officers investigating the Jimmy Savile abuse scandal.
A spokeswoman for Bauer Media which owns Magic AM said: "Following the arrest and release on police bail of Dave Lee Travis, Bauer Media has decided to take him off air with immediate effect from his Magic AM weekend shows, which broadcast across the north of England.
"We understand that the allegations about which he was questioned by police pre-date his time as a freelance contributor to Magic AM.
"While we can make no judgment on the matters under investigation, we believe it would be inappropriate for him to broadcast until they are resolved."
