Digital Radio UK hires Singer

Former CEO of Flextech, Adam Singer, has been appointed Chairman of Digital Radio UK, the company tasked with preparing the UK for digital radio upgrade.

Singer remains as Deputy Chairman of the Ofcom Content Board, but has no obvious radio background.

He has worked at senior levels in television broadcasting and telecoms in the UK, US and Japan will take up the role with immediate effect working alongside Digital Radio UK Chief Executive, Ford Ennals.

“Adam has a vast breadth of experience in the broadcasting world and his valuable knowledge will be of huge benefit to the radio sector as we move towards digital switchover”, said Andrew Harrison, CEO of RadioCentre, the industry body for Commercial Radio.

Tim Davie, Director of BBC Audio and Music, said: “In Adam Singer, we have added another top flight individual to the Digital Radio UK team."

Speaking of his appointment Adam Singer commented: “Radio goes on forever – it’s only the transmission platforms that change, and digital gives radio and its listeners a future beyond analogue imaginings. There is much to do so that all can enjoy digital radio and I look forward to working with Ford and the Digital Radio UK Board as we give radio its rightful place as the digital belle at the broadcasters’ ball.”

His former company Flextech owns various televisions stations including Bravo and Living, and Telewest Broadband.
