Global Radio has announced today that it’s to axe over a third of its online and interactive team. Around forty job losses are expected as the company enters into redundancy consultation with a number of employees.
The move follows recently appointed chief executive Stephen Miron’s first key review. Despite the cutbacks, Robin Pembrooke will remain head of Global Radio's interactive operations.
A Global Radio spokesman said: "[Miron's review] highlighted the company's ability to remodel the department ensuring its significant aspirations within the interactive market are met, as well as developing new applications such as the Capital FM IPhone, which will be extended to other devices and brands shortly."
Last year, GCap Media unveiled plans to deepen its online presence with the relaunch of Xfm.co.uk and Capitalradio.co.uk, plus the launch of social networking services around its online properties.
