2011-05 27: Global Radio's head of news Jonathan Richards, who is programme director for its London talk station LBC 97.3, is leaving the company at the end of the month. Richards had been with LBC for 16 years and was promoted to his current role in 2008. He began his radio career at Reading-based Radio 210 and then became a News Producer at BBC Radio Berkshire and producer of Punters on BBC Radio 4 before moving to Capital Radio, working as a news reporter on Capital FM and Gold and also presenting "The Way It Is ." Richards moved to Chrysalis Radio in 1995 working on Heart 106.2 , becoming its News Editor in 1997 and Network Head of News in 1999 in which role he oversaw news operations and output for the group's Heart and Galaxy stations before Chrysalis was bought by Global Radio in 2007 for GBP 170 million (Then USD 340 million - See RNW Jul 31, 2007 ) and was promoted by the new owners from the post of LBC's Editorial News Director to Programme Director to replace Scott Solder, who left radio. Announcing Richards' departure in an email to staff, Global Radio's director of broadcasting, Richard Park, said Richards had "been instrumental in taking LBC's listening figures from strength to strength and has also been a key figure in the development of the group's news function."

Parks went on to wish Richards "every success for the future" and Richards said the departure was by "amicable agreement" but nothing was said of his plans for the future.
