The BBC have decided to silence the voice of snooker, Clive Everton from the commentary box. The BBC claim this is to 'refresh' their coverage of snooker. Some other parties have suggested other reasons behind the 'sacking' of Clive. The great man himself describes how he was informed of the end of his 30 year career: "A couple of hours before I was due to commentate at the Masters a year ago I was beckoned into a corridor by Graham Frey, head of production for IMG Media, who produce the BBC's snooker coverage," he recalls. "He told me that my BBC career would end 14 weeks hence at the World Championship and that this decision had come from the BBC. After 30 years' service, I thought this was a bit thick."
