GMG Radio has announced an executive rejig in its Real Radio division in North England, which will see its North West Programme Director Dave Shearer and North East MD Martyn Healy depart the company. They won’t be directly replaced, with their responsibilities “allocated elsewhere”. In the North West Kyle Evans will take over programming duties, while in the North East GMG Radio’s Group Director Of Sales Alison Forshaw will oversee the company’s Newcastle operations.

Confirming the changes, GMG Radio’s Group Programme Director John Simons told reporters: “Kyle has a great track record. He’s a great addition to the senior programming structure and together with Mark, I am sure will strive to continue the production of award winning content, that is Dave’s legacy to the station. We thank Dave for his contribution over the last three years and wish him every success in his next venture”.
