107 JACK fm Berkshire, the station replacing Reading 107, has hired Robin Banks for breakfast.
The former Star North East programme director will also head up their new Media Academy. Robin has also worked on-air at Virgin, Kiss 100, XFM, brmb, Beat 106 and others.
Robin said; “I’m going to do another radio first on JACK. Everyone thought I was mad with my 10 Formats in 10 Days idea at my last radio station and I proved them all wrong… well this one is even better; we’re going to pay people NOT to listen!!”
Sue Reynolds, MD of JACK fm Berkshire says; “We saw and of course heard what Robin Banks can offer a radio station both on and off the air and we just had to have him! I called him, he said yes. An integral part of working here will be setting up our Media Academy and I’m genuinely delighted the students will have a teacher like Robin”.
Robin will be joined by Neal Veglio who will also head up JACK fm Berkshire’s news department.
“Robin Banks? Sh*t!” was Neal’s comment.
Robin and Neal will start working on-air together when the new 107 JACK fm Berkshire launches.
