David Lovell and Howard Bowles exit Anglian Radio

Anglian Radio’s CEO David Lovell and Group Brand and Marketing Officer Howard Bowles are leaving the company they helped create.

They both set up Media Aspect Local Ltd, owner of Anglian Radio, which was created as a result of a management buyout of Tindle Radio last year along with Ben Palmer.

In an email to staff at the group, Chairman David Cocks confirmed the departures saying: “David (Lovell) has made a significant contribution to the development and stability of independent radio in East Anglia and believed passionately in the importance of stations remaining locally focussed. Something he has made the driving force of the Group.”

David Lovell joined Mid Anglia Radio in 1983 and then moved on to Tindle Radio in 2001 as Group Finance Director.

On Howard Bowles, who is also leaving by mutual consent, David adds: “Howard has been instrumental in developing new revenue streams for the company and has worked tirelessly to implement many good initiatives across the stations. The Group wishes to place on record its thanks for his endeavours, and wish him every success for the future.”

Howard was previously with The Local Radio Company where he was responsible for all sales in the group, covering 27 radio stations before it was sold to UKRD.

David Cocks will now become Executive Chairman of the five-strong radio station group. He confirmed to staff that Anglian Radio has not been acquired by another radio company after rumours started circulating about a buy, but RadioToday understands an offer from another radio group was recently rejected.
