Smooth Radio’s Jon Kirby joins Dubai 92

Programme Controller of Smooth Radio North East Jon Kirby has left the station for a new job in Dubai.

Jon starts at Dubai 92 as Content Director this week, after eight years with the former GMG station. Prior to his appointment at Smooth, Jon was PC for Real Radio / Century Radio and Rock Radio in the North East and S&P Manager at TFM Radio.

“I’m very lucky to have this wonderful opportunity to move to Dubai and work for ARN’s Dubai 92 and I can’t wait to get started,” Jon posted on social media.

He leaves on a high – with Smooth Radio recently named as the biggest commercial radio station in the North East in RAJAR, with over half a million listeners. With 517,000 weekly listeners, Smooth North East currently has more listeners than Capital (516,000), Metro Radio (368,000) and Heart North East (285,000).

Jon was also Chair of the Radio Academy North East Branch and a judge for the Sony Radio Academy Awards.
