Global Radio has hired Christian Smith to be Music Producer of 95-106 Capital FM.
Starting in the new year, Christian will be responsible for the music roll-out for both the Capital and Capital XTRA brands and will report directly to Capital’s Managing Editor Robert D’Ovidio.
Christian joins Global after eleven years at rivals Kiss, where he’s been Head of Music for the Kiss Network. Prior to that he worked at stations including Key 103 in Manchester.
Christian said: “I’m seriously excited to start the new year as a member of the Global team. To have the opportunity to work across both Capital and the recently launched Capital XTRA is a dream role and I can’t wait to get stuck in.”
Robert D’Ovidio, Capital’s Managing Editor, said: “To appoint someone of Christian’s calibre – with his experience as a music programmer combined with his enthusiasm and creativity – is great news for Capital and Global. We look forward to welcoming him to the team.”
