Real Radio Sales Director joins TeamRock

Real Radio Scotland Sales Director Jimmy Docherty is being reunited with his former GMG colleagues by joining TeamRock as Commercial Director.

jimmyJimmy has spent over 17 working in radio, mainly on the creative side.

He joined, what was previously known as GMG Radio Scotland in 2007 as Head of Creative and took the role of Sales Director in 2010.

This new role of Commercial Director will see Jimmy focusing on partnership building, promotions and sponsorship opportunities with relevant clients and brands with no spot advertising being sold on the radio station.

He’ll be working with former GMG Radio Scotland Managing Director Billy Anderson and Group CEO John Myers. Billy is Chief Executive of TeamRock and told RadioToday: “I am delighted to have secured someone of Jimmy’s caliber into the TeamRock family. His role will be to get out into the rock community, which is both passionate and valuable and develop a more specific commercial model across our multiple platforms including magazines, radio and digital”.

Jimmy added: “TeamRock is not a traditional media business and I’m not a traditional Commercial Director, so in many ways we are the perfect fit. To say I’m hugely excited about joining the business is an understatement and I’m really looking forward to working with the talented and innovative team behind TeamRock, helping to build something that we all feel is going to be amazing.”

TeamRock Radio is part of a new content, creation and distribution business for rock fans around the world. It owns the rock titles, Metal Hammer, Classic Rock, Prog, Blues, and AOR Magazine as well as the brand extensions of the magazines alongside internationally famous branded events, The Golden Gods, Prog Awards, and The Classic Rock Roll of Honour.

The station is currently testing on Digital One nationally and will launch mid-June.
