Ashley Blake makes return – as City TV launch is delayed

The former BBC presenter is poised to resume his broadcasting career four years after his release from a two-year jail term.

Former BBC presenter Ashley Blake is set to get back behind a microphone as a presenter with Birmingham-based City TV – but the station’s launch has been delayed for six months.

The broadcaster is poised to resume his career four years after his release from a two-year jail term after he was convicted of wounding a teenager with a wooden pole at his Sutton Coldfield restaurant.

The broadcaster, now 44, told the Post that the long-awaited City TV launch would be a “new and different opportunity”.
