Jonathan Arendt appointed MD of Jazz FM

Former Planet Rock boss Jonathan Arendt has been appointed Managing Director of Jazz FM.

Jonathan said: “This is an exciting but challenging time for Jazz FM. The plans that the company has will see a step-change for the business and whilst there is a long road ahead, the opportunities are numerous and attractive.”

He’s been in commercial radio for over 25 years, and is founder of marketing and research agency Hallett Arendt. Jonathan has also been a director of Planet Rock, LBC, XFM, NME Radio and a number of independent stations across the UK. He left Planet Rock in January 2012 to set up his own digital media firm.

Richard Wheatly, Chairman Jazz FM said “We are delighted to have been able to attract someone of Jonathan’s calibre and experience to join us. We have big plans for the brand and Jonathan is the right person to deliver them. There’s a lot to do, and we believe Jonathan’s energy and skills will allow us to move things forward at pace”.

Jazz FM removed itself from national digital radio multiplex Digital One at the end of last year and has continued on the London multiplex plus online and TV.
