Ex-Rock FM managing director Paul Jordan has joined former rival station Wish FM as mid-morning presenter. Paul has been freelancing at Tower FM and is a director of UTV Radio's new Preston radio station, Proud FM, due to launch in the next 12 months.
Paul was a breakfast show presenter for eight years, spanning Radio City in Liverpool and Rock FM in Lancashire. He also spent eighteen months on Radio 1 and was a regular on Top of the Pops.
On Jordan’s appointment, John Dash, UTV Radio (GB) group programme director said: “His background in commercial radio, especially at Emap, and his knowledge of the local area will further strengthen a great presenter line-up. Again, I would like to take this opportunity to wish Paul all the best in his new role with the company”
In other news at the Wigan station, Chris Milow, who has been presenting Breakfast since the beginning of the year, has been appointed senior presenter at the station where his responsibilities include the day-to-day running of the programming department.
On Milow’s appointment, Dash said: “Chris has worked in commercial radio in the northwest for quite some time and is familiar to the listeners all over the region. His radio experience and knowledge of the area will be invaluable to the team and I wish him all the best in his new role.”
