Jonathan Arendt to depart Planet Rock

Digital station Planet Rock’s Managing Director is to leave the company to set up his own digital media firm.

Jonathan Arendt has been running the station since June 2010, having previously held roles at Original 106, LBC, XFM and NME Radio.

Current Planet Rock owner Malcolm Bluemel will take over as CEO in March when Jonathan leaves to work on 7West Ltd, a company offering digital products to radio stations and being set up with G Media co-founder Ricki Lee.

Jonathan said: “The last 18 months have been brilliant, working with truly talented people and great rock music – what could have been better? Malcolm has big plans for the station and I know it will go from strength to strength.”

Malcolm Bluemel added: “Jonathan will be missed at Planet Rock. He has driven audience and revenue to record levels and overseen a complete re-image of the station. I wish him well and look forward to working with 7West in the future.”
