Walshe returns to Manchester after Kerrang!
Kerrang! 105.2 Programme Director James Walshe has re-located within Bauer Media, and has taken on the position of Acting PD at Key 103.
James left Kerrang! in Birmingham last week after Bauer Media closed the station building and started networking Planet Rock from London on the West Midlands frequency instead.
The move north sees a return to the city for James, as he was previously Deputy Programme Director at cross-town rival Galaxy before it was rebranded to Capital FM.
Bauer Media declined to comment on the move and the future management structure at Key 103, where former PD Gary Stein hasn’t been replaced since leaving the position five months ago. He’s since announced he’s leaving Bauer to join Global Radio.
North West Group Programme Director Richard Maddock also announced his departure recently to join 5 live.
