Celador Radio, which operates a network of local stations under the Breeze brand, plus three Jack FM outlets, announced earlier this week the appointment of a new CEO in the form of Don Thomson.

Thomson was previously with Chrysalis Radio and, after its acquisition by Global, was COO for that company for two years helping oversee the acquisition of GCap. He has had an advisory role with the Celador radio company since 2010 as a non-executive director.

Celador Radio was one of a number of smaller commercial radio operators in the UK that recently backed a call on the government to abandon its plans to force a shift of key radio services off AM/FM onto the DAB digital network.
