Surrell leaves Bauer after 22 years
Bauer Media's north west managing director Michelle Surrell has resigned from her position, and will be leaving the company after 22 years.
Michelle joined TFM in 1987 and worked her way up through various stations in the north, with stints as MD of Rock FM and Radio Aire.
Dee Ford, group managing director of radio for Bauer said in an internal memo, which RadioToday.co.uk has seen, that Michelle has decided now is the right time for her to plan the next phase of her career.
"I’d like to thank Michelle personally for all her hard work," Dee continues. "She has been a great Ambassador for the business and is passionately committed to each and everystation she has worked in. Her roles as MD of Rock FM, Radio Aire, her time as MD of Big City leading to her current role as Regional MD of Bauer in the North West have all played a part in the success of Big City.
It is expected a replacement will be announced in due course, but Bauer said they have "nothing to announce on that front" when contacted by RadioToday.co.uk.
