Tobin and Jungius to run Capitals

Global Radio has announced that Brent Tobin and Alex Jungius will oversee the programming for the 8 stations that turn to Capital FM in 2011.

The London station will continue to be run by PD James Brownlow who recently joined from Galaxy Manchester.

Outside of London, Brent will be Regional Group Programme Director for Capital, with Alex as Deputy Regional Group PD.

The other eight stations outside of London will also be headed by a team of Programmer Controllers (listed below), who will be responsible for the transition of their stations to Capital and for the general programming of the station following launch in January.

Capital arrives in the regions from 3 January 2011, meaning the end of brands like Trent FM, Leicester Sound, Ram FM, Red Dragon FM and Galaxy.

With a weekly reach of 6.7 million, the new Capital Network will be the largest 'hit music' network in the UK, creating a commercial rival to Radio 1. Today also saw the addition of Capital FM to the Freeview line-up.

Richard Park, Director of Broadcasting at Global Radio, said: "I'm pleased to announce the team that will lead Global’s Capital Network. We’re looking forward to the launch at the start of the new year."

Global also plans to launch a brand new charity – 'Help A Capital Child' which will be supported across the entire national Capital network, with grants awarded locally. Capital's Help A London Child has raised more than £22 million for children’s charities since it was founded in 1975.
