UKRD’s Cornish based station, Pirate FM, is to have a new Managing Director starting in March. Mark Peters, Managing Director at the groups Cambridge based station, Star Radio, has been confirmed in post in an announcement to all staff this week by Chief Executive Officer, William Rogers.

Mark, who comes from a programming background and has been a presenter and Programme Controller, has held the post of MD at Star Radio for a couple of years and is “over the moon” to be appointed.

“Mark has done a superb job for the company during his time running Star Radio – his first senior management role - and he has developed into a first class people manager, entrepreneur and strategic thinker. He will bring a set of skills to the post which will give Pirate the opportunity to develop in a wide range of areas and I congratulate him on this appointment,” said Rogers.

“I’m over the moon to have been given this opportunity,” said Mark. “I’ve had a great time at Star Radio in Cambridge and I’ve learned a huge amount. I’ll leave the station in great shape, the best it’s ever been in, and with an excellent team in place. Pirate is an altogether bigger beast and I can’t wait to get stuck in and help the team there to deliver outstanding results and make real progress in many existing areas as well as what I hope will be exciting new ones.”

“Pirate FM is the group’s largest station, with a massive heritage and clear dominance in the marketplace. Together with the team, I am determined to build on that success and I’m ambitious to see the station move beyond what it has achieved in the past to set new records in all areas,” said Mark.
