Metro and Magic in the North East have contracted Claire Barber PR Marketing and Customer Strategy to hand the two Bauer station's public relations.
And of course the first thing Claire does is email Radio Today to let us know. So far so good!
Marketing Director for Metro Radio and Magic 1152 Dominic Munnelly says: "We’re excited to have joined up with Claire Barber to handle PR for Metro Radio and Magic 1152. Her understanding of our business and creative ability to identify media opportunities has been demonstrated from the outset.
"Claire has many strong business relationships across the North East that we can engage with to deliver partnership activity in different areas of our business. Most importantly she has a real passion for delivering impactful results".
Claire Barber is equally as thrilled: "This is a really exciting development for my business – in the last few weeks working with Dom and Metro and Magic Radio, I have been able to work on stories involving Cheryl Cole, Alesha Dixon and Alastair Campbell. It doesn't get much bigger than that".
Claire already works with ITV Tyne Tees and Borders Philippa Tomson, premiership rugby player Tom May, TFM Radio's Wayne Allen and Tony Horne.
