Mark Peters appointed new Pirate FM MD

Star Radio Cambridge Managing Director Mark Peters is heading to Cornwall to take up the same post at Pirate FM.

Mark, who comes from a programming background and has been a presenter and Programme Controller, has held the post of MD at Star Radio for a couple of years and is “over the moon” to be appointed.

“I’ve had a great time at Star Radio in Cambridge and I’ve learned a huge amount,” He said. “I’ll leave the station in great shape, the best it’s ever been in, and with an excellent team in place. Pirate is an altogether bigger beast and I can’t wait to get stuck in and help the team there to deliver outstanding results and make real progress in many existing areas as well as what I hope will be exciting new ones.”

Mark replaces Beverley Warne who left in November year after 20 years at the station.

Pirate FM is owned and operated by UKRD. Group CEO William Rogers: “Mark has done a superb job for the company during his time running Star Radio – his first senior management role – and he has developed into a first class people manager, entrepreneur and strategic thinker. He will bring a set of skills to the post which will give Pirate the opportunity to develop in a wide range of areas and I congratulate him on this appointment.”

Mark added: “Pirate FM is the group’s largest station, with a massive heritage and clear dominance in the marketplace. Together with the team, I am determined to build on that success and I’m ambitious to see the station move beyond what it has achieved in the past to set new records in all areas.”
