Northsound founder leaves
Andrew Lewis, the founder and chairman of Northsound, has decided to step down from his position after almost 30 years.
Mr Lewis founded the station in 1981 and has been Chairman since the franchise award.
Dee Ford, Group MD, Radio at Bauer Media, said: “Andrew Lewis is one of Scotland’s leading businessmen. His depth of broadcasting knowledge and invaluable insight greatly contributed to our current number one position in the market. Through all the twists and turns of the past 28 years he has always provided wise counsel and I am personally delighted that Andrew has graciously offered to remain available to us in an informal capacity. His legacy will live on through the multi-award winning stations he founded”.
Mr Lewis, commented: “Northsound is a wonderfully successful company and to have been involved with such a talented, enthusiastic team has been an absolute privilege. I’ve enjoyed each of our 28 years and know I leave these very special stations in the hands of a highly experienced team that is passionate about broadcasting. There was never going to be a good time to step down, so I think today’s celebration is as good a time as ever. I wish everyone at Northsound and the many talented people who have gone on to work elsewhere in the industry all the very best for the future.”
