Capital Yorkshire PD leaves after 13 years
Capital FM Yorkshire and Deputy Regional Group Programme Director Alex Jungius is leaving Global to join production company Distorted as Strategic Director.
Alex joined the Galaxy Network in 2002 to lead the imaging team before becoming the Programme Director of the Yorkshire station, with the creation of the new national Capital Network in 2011.
Brent Tobin, Capital’s regional group programme director told RadioToday: “After 13 years at Capital Alex is moving on. We’re sad to see him go and we wish him all the best.”
Leeds-based Distorted makes content for international networks such as Sirius XM, iHeart Radio and Kiss, along with in-flight content for airlines such as British Airways. It was set up by Andi Durrant and Nick Riley in 2013.
Alex: “I’ve had an amazing 13 years with Global but the opportunity to nurture and create world class content with Distorted was too good to pass up. They also have a bloody fruit machine in the office…no brainer!”
Andi Durrant tells RadioToday: “We’re incredibly excited to have Alex join the growing team here at Distorted. As Strategic Director he will bring some fantastic experience and creativity to the company, and expand our portfolio outside of music programming.”
