Communicorp’s* Manchester station Real XS has promoted breakfast show producer Matt White to Programme Manager.
Matt said: “I’m really excited about the changes to our show line-up on Real XS and I can’t wait to get stuck into my new role on the station. We have some great talent on-air and I look forward to working with the team to continue to develop the sound of Real XS.”
He replaces Mark Matthews, who has left to join Signal 1 in Stoke-on-Trent as Station Director whilst Rachel Austin takes maternity.
Mark was also host of the afternoon drive show, and will be replaced on-air by Paul Carlin, meaning late show host Sophie takes on Paul’s former evening show.
Mark will continue to host a Sunday afternoon show between 12pm and 4pm.
The station is also launching a new, hour-long show, called ‘My XS’, where a listener will be able to choose an hour of their favourite songs, every weekday at 2pm.
*The deal for Communicorp to own the station should be cleared next week, and the final transfer deal from Global Radio complete by the end of March.
