Bauer Network Content Director Mike Cass is leaving the company at the end of the summer.
Originally, Mike looked after the Bauer Radio Place 2 and 3 Portfolios throughout the North of England and Scotland, based in Leeds. He was then moved to a new role of Network Content Director, responsible for growing audiences through City 1 networked shows in addition to his original remit.
He started at the company in January 2015 after leaving Nova Entertainment in Australia where he was assistant Group Programme Director.
Prior to his time at Nova, Mike was Group Programme Director for the Galaxy and Choice FM networks. He started his broadcasting career at Leicester Sound whilst still at school and became a presenter back in 1991. He spent some time at SGR Colchester and MFM, was one of the launch presenters at Heart 106.2 and joined Galaxy as Head of Music in 1997.
A Bauer spokesperson confirmed the departure to RadioToday, saying: “Mike Cass will leave his position as Network Content Director Bauer at the end of the summer. We want to thank Mike for his contribution to the Bauer City network over the last 18 months, in particular the switch of Radio City 2 and Radio City Talk on FM and DAB”.
