MD appointed for RadioPlayer

Radioplayer, the much hyped online console for the radio industry, has appointed Michael Hill as managing director.

Hill, who has been leading the project since May 2009, will report to the Radioplayer board. He has previously worked 5 live and Channel 4.

The yet-to-be-launched Radioplayer will aim to "put the audience in control and make online listening simple and accessible".

It is being developed by the BBC, Global Radio, GMG Radio, RadioCentre and Absolute Radio and will hopefully become the Google of Radio.

Michael Hill: “Radio is an incredibly powerful medium, thanks to its simplicity and the way it dovetails effortlessly with our lives. Radioplayer will bring those strengths to online listening in a way which will benefit stations of all sizes – from the largest BBC and commercial groups to the smallest community and student services. I'm proud to be part of this game-changing project.”

Andrew Harrison, Chairman of Radioplayer and Chief Executive of RadioCentre, said: “Radioplayer is a hugely exciting proposition, providing a simple online platform alongside DAB for audiences to discover and listen to more digital radio, and we are delighted to have someone of Michael's unique experience and understanding at the helm."

No date has been set for RadioPlayer as yet.
