The editor of London News Radio’s News Direct 97.32 FM channel,
Chris Mann, left the station last week. The terms of his departure are
currently under negotation. The move comes as the broadcaster’s new
programme director, John Simons, initiates a review of the output on
News Direct and the organisation’s other station, LBC 11.52 AM. Mann has
been at the station since its launch in November 1996.
