MD and PD to exit Capital Radio
Capital Radio Managing Director Keith Pringle and Programme Director Nik Goodman are stepping down from their positions with immediate effect.
The latest departures from the newly merged company follow in the footsteps of David Mansfield, formerly Capital’s boss, commercial director Linda Smith, operations director Paul Davies and Graham Bryce, the managing director of Choice and Capital Gold.
The company will confirm the name of the new Programme Director next week.
Commenting on today?s announcement, GCap Operations Director Steve Orchard said: ?Since the implementation of the changes to the station in January, much has been achieved through the commitment, hard work and creativity of the team at Capital Radio.
The new advertising policy has been welcomed by advertisers, we have held pricing levels, and early listener feedback from our own research is extremely encouraging.? ?However, there is still much to do at this critical time in order to take the station to the next level and attract new listeners. This role is now a unique position in radio in the UK that requires a different skill set and expertise as we seek to turn the station around.? ?I would like to thank Keith Pringle and Nik Goodman for their significant contribution to the re-launch and management of the station in recent years. They are talented and experienced programmers and I wish them every success for the future.?
