Griffin kisses Emap goodbye

Bill Griffin has quit as Managing Director of Emap's Kiss network, just three months after masterminding its relaunch. Griffin, the former head of marketing at Channel 4, has been with the dance station for 16 months and is leaving to join an unnamed communications agency.

Emap Radio say Mr Griffin will be replaced in the interim by their current marketing and communications director, Steve Parkinson, until a successor is found.

Bill Griffin relaunched Kiss 100 in London with new DJ signings, such as Carl Cox, and oversaw a move towards more listener interaction and a new website. At the same time two Kiss regional stations in Bristol and East Anglia were added to the brand, changing from the Vibe brand inherited with the merger of Emap and SRH.

Dee Ford, the group managing director of Emap Radio, thanked Mr Griffin for his work on refreshing the Kiss brand and leading the successful integration of the former Vibe stations into the Kiss family, whilst achieving Kiss's highest Rajar figures for two years".
