Jamie Cawdell appointed Deputy Content Director of Hi FM in Oman

Former Radio Essex Assistant Programme Controller Jamie Cawdell is joining Hi FM in Oman as Deputy Content Director.

Jamie, who runs the CHR Prep Service, will also be Head of Music at the station along with running a new classic rock station called So! Radio.

Robin Banks, Content Director of Hi FM and So! Radio, told RadioToday: “Jamie impressed me from the start of this process, he stood out. We’re a small team here and I think he’ll fit in beautifully. If it doesn’t work out then we’ll just automate”.

Speaking about the new role, Jamie enthused: “I’ve seriously long admired Hi FM and wondered just how they manage to sound so damn slick all the time so I’m thrilled to be let into the war room and told all the secrets to their success in Oman, Robin’s told me a few of them but refuses to tell me the others until I’m there!”

Jamie will start his new role in January 2023.
