More Radio 1 staffers head to Apple for new look iTunes

By | Published on Thursday 30 April 2015


As speculation continues to mount as to what the ever secretive Apple have planned for its all new look iTunes with added Beats, Music Business Worldwide reports that four Radio 1 execs have followed Zane Lowe to the IT giant to work on the new platform, which we all expect to put curation front and centre.

Lowe, of course, announced he was leaving the BBC for an undefined role at Apple back in February. MBW reckons that amongst the four other Radio 1 staffers seemingly heading to iTunes are Lowe’s former producer James Bursey, and three others, including people involved in BBC Introducing.

MBW also notes that James Foley seems to have departed Deezer – where he headed up the digital service’s UK editorial – and suspicions are that he is also joining Apple, which will have a London team for the all new iBeats.

It’s expected more will be revealed about what is planned for iBeats at Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference in June.
