Nation Radio is getting ready to launch in Scotland next month with the appointment of Kirsty Pugh as Commercial Director.
Kirsty held the same position at Global where she represented its national brands in Scotland and also previously Sales Manager at Real Radio before it became Heart.
Nation Radio’s founder and Executive Chairman Jason Bryant said: “Kirsty has the track record, local relationships and the passion to make Nation Radio a successful, challenger brand in the Glasgow media market. We look forward to providing local advertisers a fresh and exciting advertising choice in Glasgow and the West.”
96.3 Nation Radio will launch in September after buying the recently awarded Glasgow and West / Central Scotland FM licence from Rock Radio.
Kirsty said: “I am looking forward to launching Nation Radio in Scotland and offering Glasgow local clients a more personalised relationship and really focus on helping advertisers achieve the best possible results from their advertising. Local media must work best for local clients and, I believe, sometimes they lose out to national campaigns. Nation Radio is committed to prioritising the marketing needs of local businesses in Glasgow and West central Scotland.”
