Matthew Pells appointed Content Manager at YCR

Yorkshire Coast Radio has appointed Matthew Pells in the new position of Content Manager.

YCR’s Managing Director Chris Sigsworth has held the dual role of Managing Director and Programme Controller since 1998, and was part of the original presenter line-up when the station launched in 1993. But now he’s handing over some of the programming responsibility.

Chris says: “Yorkshire Coast Radio has enjoyed huge success over the years, and our audience today is as strong as ever. As our brand develops as a multi-platform content provider the time is right for us to create the new role of Content Manager to lead our team in providing engaging local content on-air, as well as across our digital platforms.”

Matthew Pells, who joined the station a year ago, becomes Content Manager. Matthew has previously worked for Minster FM and BBC Radio York.

The station, based in Scarborough, is also adding to its news team. Chris says “More and more people are relying upon us for local news and information, not only on-air, but on a multiple of platforms. The investment we are making in providing great local content will strengthen our position on a number of platforms and help us to deliver an even better service for the area.”
