Giles Eyre-Tanner is new PC at Capital NE

Global Radio have announced that Giles Eyre-Tanner will become Programme Controller of 105-106 Capital FM North East from next month.

He joins from sister station 105 Capital FM Yorkshire where he has been breakfast producer for the last four years, and takes over from Stuart Barrie who has been overseeing programming on both the Capital NE and Scotland stations.

Before joining Galaxy 105 in Yorkshire, Giles worked at Bauer’s TFM as a journalist, football commentator and breakfast producer. He’s also worked as a producer at BBC Radio Tees.

Giles – who starts the new role on 5 October – told “For me, the North East is home, and I’m passionate about the region. I can’t wait to get stuck in. Having had a great four years at Capital Yorkshire, I am thrilled to be undertaking a new challenge at another Capital station within the network.”

One of his first jobs is likely to be to find a new breakfast show, with reports current morning duo Steve and Karen are leaving the station in 2012 to join a rival local station in the region.

Stuart Barrie, meanwhile, will focus entirely on his work at Capital Scotland, having overseen the North East station output since its re-brand from Galaxy earlier this year.

Capital North East’s Managing Director Kim Miljus said: “Capital North East continues to grow in both audience and revenue, therefore making it essential for us to have a full time programme controller. We thank Stuart for leading the programming team this far, and we welcome Giles into his new role.”
