The Chrysalis Radio Group has named Jonathan Richards as head of
network news for its Heart and Galaxy radio brands. Previously head of
news for Heart 106.2 FM, Richards will develop national and
international news bulletins. The appointment comes as Chrysalis moves
towards sourcing more of its news in-house. The regional newsrooms will
continue to run independently of the central London operation, but will
be able to use feeds when local newsrooms are unstaffed. Prior to
Chrysalis, Richards worked for Capital Radio and BBC Radio 4.
