Dave Masterman moves from Global to Bauer

Dave Masterman, Producer of the Chris Moyles Show on Radio X, is leaving Global and joining Absolute Radio.

He has been hired as Executive Producer of the station, working on programmes hosted by Dave Berry, Jason Manford and Christian O’Connell.

Absolute Radio Content Director Paul Sylvester said: “As we evolve the Absolute Radio brand, there’s no better person to join our team than Dave Masterman. He’ll lead the creative vision for the new Dave Berry show as well as the Christian O’Connell and Jason Manford shows. He’s an award-winning producer with impressive music and comedy credibility’s, so he’ll fit right in at One Golden Square.”

Absolute Radio’s Matt Dyson also left Global recently, joining the Christian O’Connell Breakfast Show in 2015. Matt was previously the breakfast show producer at XFM and was with the station for almost 10 years.

Talking about Dave leaving Global, Matt Deverson, Radio X Managing Editor, told RadioToday: “Dave is taking a new role at Absolute Radio. I’d like to thank him for his unfaltering hard work over this time. Dave is a genuine pleasure to work with, and I wish him lots of luck with his next role.”

Dave Masterman will join Absolute Radio after Easter.

    Such a shame been really enjoying him on Moyles Show. But it’s a massive gain for Absolute. Best of luck to him.

    Dave and Matt Dyson together again. Just bring in Jon Holmes and it’s the old XFM Breakfast Show team reunited.
    That would tempt me to tune in.

    Damn will miss him on Saturdays with Elis James & John Robins.

    This is very sad as Dave really bounced off Chris, Dom and Pippa. I will especially miss his morrissey impression. I personally don’t know why anyone would want to give up working with Chris as I think he’s hilarious

      More money, perhaps? ^_^ But I agree with you. I will miss Dave, too. 🙁 Hopefully, Chris will pick a good replacement.

    I don’t think Dave enjoys the “Hannah” bit. I think he gets a lot of grief at home for it. Many a true thing said in jest as they say.
