CHR Prep Service hires Simon Lumsden as Head of Content

The CHR Prep Service has appointed former Sky News journalist Simon Lumsden as Head of Content.

Simon will lead the final output of the prep service which is produced for stations around the world, like KIIS 1065 in Sydney and Z100 in New York.

Simon previously worked at Radio Clyde and as an Area Content Manager for the GWR Group before moving to Sky News as a News Editor and Journalist.

More recently, he was responsible for the rebrand of 89.7 Bay in Malta working as the Station Manager.

Jamie Cawdell, Managing Editor, said: “Simon is a massive hire and I am confident his clear experience in the field of news and editorial will take the product to a new level we could previously only dream of reaching.”

“Our team is relatively small in comparison to many newsrooms similar to our own so having someone who has this level of experience feels almost like cheating.”

Speaking about his role, Simon said: “I am delighted to bring my experience, passion and commitment to the talented CHR Prep Service team.”

“My main focus will be on delivering the key content that matters the most to the millions of listeners around the world who hear our work.”
