Jacqui was the outstanding candidate and has Pulse coursing through her veins.”
Terry Underhill, Group Programme Director added “we’re incredibly excited to welcome Jacqui into the role of Content Controller at Pulse 1 and 2, the most listened to stations in the area. She’s been a fantastic member of the team for many years and this promotion into the top job is truly well deserved. We’ll all miss Tony and I wish him well in his new venture.”
