Local shows reduced at Global

Global Radio have announced major changes to their Heart and Galaxy networks. Weekday mid-morning and afternoon programming will be networked as well as other programmes across the weekend. Comments by chief executive Ashley Tabor suggest the newly acquired One Network will see similar changes.

The changes will occur from 28th April 2008, with Galaxy network programmes based in Leeds and the Heart network based in London.

Galaxy presenters Sacha Brooks and Matt Spokes will present the new networked weekday shows, while Emma B will be networked across the regional stations in the East and West Midlands.

Galaxy and Heart will be networked from 7pm to 6am weekdays and from Friday 7pm to Monday 6am, excluding 8-12pm. Galaxy will also be networked from 10am – 4pm weekdays, and Heart between 1- 4pm.

Commenting on the changes, Ashley Tabor said:

"It will be national at the right time of day and local at the right time of day, offering people local programming when they really want it. What you end up with is a quasi-national radio station.”

"People assume networking is about big name DJs. It's not, it's about quality presenters. If you take 50 different radio stations there cannot possibly be 50 good presenters at every station in a particular slot. Why not take the two or three quality class players and put them across the network.”
