Radio Academy CEO John Myers has joined a radio station in Spain as a consultant and presenter.
He’ll oversee the expansion of Spectrum FM and also host a weekly Sunday morning show at the English speaking station, in addition to his Radio Academy role.
The station broadcasts around Spain, Majorca, The Canary Islands and Gibraltar – but is now operating under new legislation which was introduced recently in Spain, tightening up the rules on how radio stations operate.
John told RadioToday.co.uk: “I live in Spain a lot of the time so I am delighted to be able to help them build on their current success. It will also be fun to be able to play a small part in focusing the output to be the best it can be and getting back on air once a week. Music and Sunshine, what more can anyone want?”
Tim Smith, programme controller at Spectrum said: “John Myers will help us ensure we deliver the best radio station on the dial and focus our operation on delivering results for clients and an output that people want to hear. We are live 24 hours a day and his agreement to present a weekly show for us each Sunday morning is an added bonus.”
Owner Gary Lewis added: “Spectrum FM is committed to delivering the best English service radio station in Spain. This investment allows us to further improve our position as Spain’s number one English speaking radio station.”
