Afternoons host Ernie Sigley will relinquish his full-time role at 3AW in November.

The Footscray-born entertainer with the infectious laugh made the decision after a two-week holiday during which he celebrated his 70th birthday 'with a small night out (wink)'.

For his many avid listeners, the good news is that Ernie will stay with 3AW in a part-time role.

"I had a think about it over the holiday period and four hours is just getting a bit much," Ernie told 3AW.com.au. "They want me to stay around, which is great. It will just mean I get to play a bit more golf now."

Sigley has been with 3AW since 1996, during which time he has interviewed a plethora of international and Australian A-Grade talent - listen to his interview with Jerry Lewis from Tuesday by clicking here.
