Capital name new Programmer
GCap Media have appointed Scott Muller, the programme director of Sydney radio station Nova 969, to replace Nik Goodman at Capital Radio. Goodman left the station last week, along with managing director Keith Pringle.
Scott was responsible for the successful launch of Nova 969, which took the number one spot in a competitive metropolitan market with a similar format and advertising inventory policy to Capital Radio. He was recently voted Australian Programme Director of the Year.
Steve Orchard, operations director, GCap Media, said: “While we are encouraged by the progress we have made since January and are receiving positive listener feedback, there is still much to do at this critical time in order to attract new listeners. In Scott Muller, we are gaining a world class programmer with the specific skills and experience to help us take the station to the next level.”
Muller said: “London is the most vibrant and competitive radio market in the world and Capital Radio is at its core. Having taken Nova Sydney to the top spot in a similar market, I understand the challenges and opportunities that we will face and I am incredibly excited to be joining at what is a pivotal time in the station’s growth.”
