Mark Story has been promoted to managing director, national brands for Bauer Radio. The move follows the promotion of Andria Vidler from MD of Magic 105.4 to chief marketing officer of Bauer Consumer Media. Story is currently Bauer Radio’s managing director of programming.
His deputy will be Alison Finch, currently Commercial Director for Kiss and Magic who will take up the new role of Operations Director of National Brands.
Story will lead the teams across Magic 105.4 and the national digital stations. He will also retain his responsibility for group radio regulatory issues and his national S&P creative director role working alongside Bauer Advertising.
Mark said: “Taking over the number one station in arguably the most competitive radio market in the world would be thrilling in its own right. Add to that the chance to continue shaping the UK’s most successful national digital radio portfolio makes it a truly irresistible opportunity."
