    Cahrlotte. You are to newsreading and continuity what John Arlott was to cricket commentary.
    I will miss you in twenty years time

    I cannot believe we've heard Charlotte's voice for the last time - surely some voiceover or lucrative advertising work will bring you back quite soon - good luck

    Goodbye Charlotte, me & the kids have really enjoyed listening to you, especially on the News Quiz. Please record a Sat Nav voice, I'm sure it would be very popular & they could sell it for charity! Best wishes for the future X

    "If satin sheets could talk, they'd sound like me" - 'Charlotte Green' on Dead Ringers.

    How true! I shall miss you on BBC Radio, but hope to hear you somehow in your new roles - A big media fish is probably calling!

    I grew up as Charlotta Geen and when I started listening to Radio 4 and heard this wonderful voice belonging to Charlotte Green I felt a big connection. I have enjoyed your voice ever since. I'm so pleased I just caught your last news broadcast and wish you a successful future. You are still in your prime so I hope you make the most of your gift, valued by many.

    I have seen many changes in life through the decades, but Charlotte’s comforting voice has remained there through them all. I have little doubt, that I am one of many thousands of southern Irish Radio 4 listeners who will miss her melodic voice, along with its encapsulating sense of well being.
    If there were to be a competition for the most perfect human voice in the world, Charlotte would be there at the top along with many of her colleagues. I wish her all the best for the future and that her ever so precious vocal chords will bring her great fortune.

    To Charlotte - wishing you every happiness - I haven't laughed so much ever when waking up, as I did that never- to- be- forgotten- morning, when I heard your giggles 'live'. If I was famous/ a celebrity worthy of a Desert Island Discs programme, that clip would be be the one I'd 'save' from the waves. It's such a tonic ! I had tears rolling down my face when I heard it again today.Thank you. Amelia D

    I will miss your giggles on News Quiz. Enjoy your "retirement". I am sure we will hear you on Radio 4. Your corpsing on the Today programme will live forever. Good luck

    The way that Charlotte used to say "Scilly Lightship" was like a mother gently chiding an errant child. Her warm, distinctive tones will be remembered affectionately for a long time and her work will surely be favourably associated with the likes of Alvar Lidell, John Snagge and Douglas Smith.

    I'm bereft! I still can't quite believe it has happened. For more than twenty-five years Charlotte has been my rock. Whatever vicissitudes of fate have struck, nationally or personally, there has always been Charlotte's reassuring presence to soothe away the angst. Charlotte has been the essence of England, her calm, warm voice chamfering away the sharp corners of life. I don't know how I will cope without her.
