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.
