Fru Hazlitt is leaving Capital Radio to head the European sales

operations for Yahoo!.



Hazlitt will be based at Yahoo! Europe and the company is currently

seeking a UK office for operations. She will be responsible for

developing new sales strategies across Yahoo!’s eight European outlets

and will build pan-European advertising deals.



Hazlitt said: ’My job will be to make technology accessible to all

clients who think that radio and TV are the safe options.’



Hazlitt is the second of Capital’s management personnel lost to Yahoo!

in the past six months. Ex-managing director Martina King left Capital

to join the internet company as UK and Ireland managing director.



Hazlitt explained: ’I was aware that there was a job opening at Yahoo!

for some months, and a firm of head hunters called me to ask my opinion

about a candidate who was put forward for the job. I think they were

deciding whether they wanted Martina or myself at that stage.’



Hazlitt confirmed that she will remain with Capital for the next six

months and will be looking for new staff to join her at Yahoo! in the

near future.



Hazlitt joined Capital Radio six years ago and moved rapidly up the

company ladder from client sales director to group head. She eventually

set up and led the ad sales department in 1997 with a team of 139.
