Global appoints new Xfm Managing Editor

Chris Baughen has been appointed as Managing Editor of Xfm.

He replaces Andy Ashton who has been in the position for two years, and is leaving the station to take up a new role with an online and digital media company.

Chris Baughen has previously been Senior Producer at Xfm, before becoming Executive Producer of Capital Breakfast on London’s 95.8 Capital FM. He’s joining in September.

Chris Baughen: “Xfm has always been special to me both as a listener and a programmer and I can’t wait to get stuck in! It’s my aim to take the station to even greater heights, building on the past twenty years of fantastic music and groundbreaking presenters.”

Reporting to Director of Broadcasting and Group Executive Director, Richard Park, Baughen will be responsible for Xfm’s entire programming and output from both its London and Manchester bases.

Departing Andy Ashton said: “I’ve had an absolutely fantastic time at Xfm and Global Radio over the last twenty months. It’s an amazing company and I will miss the people greatly. I am extremely proud to be handing over a network with a revitalised energy, a strong identity and a roster of talent to die for. The culture of creativity and innovation we have built will benefit the network for years to come.”

Global Radio’s Director of Broadcasting Richard Park said: “Chris is a highly experienced and dedicated programmer with a real passion for radio and especially Xfm. His leadership and commitment will be a tremendous asset to everyone at the station. I would like to thank Andy for all his hard work and enthusiasm during his time with Global Radio and we wish him every success with his new ventures.”
