New MD for musicals station Encore Radio
UKRD has appointed Dave Alsybury to run Encore Radio, its digital station that plays songs from the shows.
Dave is the former MD of Juice 107.2 in Brighton and before that had worked mainly at stations in Ireland.
Most recently, he’s been managing UKRD’s other digital station, My Music Radio.
Dave takes up the post of Managing Director of Encore Radio with immediate effect, and told us: “Encore Radio has started to make an impact and it’s time to step up
activity in all areas to drive the station forward, building audience and commercial success as it heads towards its first anniversary in October. This is a great opportunity to make a difference at a relatively early stage of this unique station’s life. We are getting a great reaction from listeners who know about Encore Radio and it’s my task now to ensure that many more who like the genre are persuaded to try the station and enjoy its great mix of musical theatre and movie songs.”
Encore Radio is on DAB across London and the south east of England.
