“Helping to increase audience levels at all our stations is something I relish the opportunity to do and I’m looking forward to enhancing still further the truly local radio services which UKRD delivers in its markets.”

Chris’s appointment also coincided with an internal announcement that sees the launch of a training and development at the company.

Announcing the details, Dave Coull told UKRD’s teams, “At the very heart of this plan lies the opportunity for all of those who have the appetite and enthusiasm to grow within UKRD, to do just that. This is all about developing and progressing,” he said.
