Global Radio has announced that Richard Park is stepping down as Director Of Broadcasting at the company after a period of ill-health.

According to Radio Today, radio industry veteran Park is on the mend, but has decided to reduce his hands-on involvement in the Global business. However, he will stay on the company’s board and will take on the new role of Senior Programming Advisor.

Paying tribute to Park, Global boss Ashley Tabor told Radio Today: “Richard has been my radio mentor since I was fifteen years old. He’s taught me so much, most importantly to trust my instincts and the realities of how things work in the real world. Quite simply, Global wouldn’t be the company it is today without him”.

For his part, Park added: “Global is in great shape and I look forward to continuing my close relationship with Ashley and his top team of highly skilled managing editors. It’s a great feeling to still be a part of the biggest company in the radio business where I’ve had a productive and happy twelve years”.
