Super Station appoints new PD

The Super Station Orkney has appointed Ryan Woodman as programme director. The 23 year old started his career at Radio Caroline seven years ago.

At Radio Caroline, he was instrumental in negotiating with Sky to give them full European satellite coverage as well as setting them up on Worldspace.

He was then asked by Radio Nova boss Chris Cary at just 18 to programme what would be Chris’s last venture in radio in Australia called “what’s next” which was finally sold to Cybervale PTY ltd and renamed “The Cow”.

The Super Station managing director Dave Miller explains the board’s reasons for the promotion: “Ryan is 23 and I have worked with some of the best programmers in the country in my career but never have I worked with someone as loyal and talented as this. Obviously to have such an asset in somewhere as remote as Orkney is superb for us and we are under no illusion that he will be here forever as big groups are already enquiring about him however this is our way of showing our appreciation for his commitment and more importantly means that Ryan will always be an integral part of the decision making for the project.”

Speaking about his new appointment, Ryan said: “I am delighted to be taking on the position as programme director, and look forward to developing the Super Station brand further. The Super Station is one of the most remote stations within the UK, that doesn’t mean the quality of programming or content should be any different than in a big city.”
