VETERAN broadcaster is turning his back on farming after 30 years.
The Cardiff-born journalist and presenter of BBC Radio 4’s Today programme, is giving up farm life because he feels like an “amateur”.
The former Western Mail reporter bought a 134-acre holding and 100 cows in the ‘70s, but his rural Carmarthenshire base is now on the market.
Despite selling the herd and more than 110 acres shortly after buying them, Humphrys held on to the farm and 16 acres for his own personal use.

"He doesn't let go," Sands said of Humphrys on Radio 4's The Media Show. "He's a terrier, so I think you should expect something exciting."
He got halfway to a decent point with hamface this morning about lazy campaigning for the Brexit referendum and him dragging the Queen into Indyref when the undesirable result there was gaining momentum but then completely overlooked the gammon robot's miserable attempts to control the rabid element in the Tories (and allowing him to spout off some bollocks about compassionate conservatism unchallenged). I guess elements that have come to light since then such as Putin's interference and the blatant self-serving machinations of the ERG were beyond Cameron's control at the time but it might have been interesting to see his reaction to the new propulsion of the Brexit discourse but nope, he just gets more finger jabbing about dragging Brenda into politics 5 years ago.youngian wrote: ↑Wed Sep 18, 2019 7:11 pm"He doesn't let go," Sands said of Humphrys on Radio 4's The Media Show.

Not letting go by repeating trite points (‘but the people have spoken..’) fills up time when you’re not well briefed to tackle complex arguments. His pathetic cosy chat with Liam Fox this morning a case in point. The nutty NeoCon was essentially advocating bombing Iran but it all passed Humphrys by. Good riddance.
