The Week: People News - Global Radio axes top jobs

Charles Allen's Global Radio has axed five senior management roles as part of a restructure that sees Don Thompson, the commercial director, promoted to chief operating officer.

The Heart managing director, Barnaby Dawe; the LBC managing director, David Lloyd; the Galaxy managing director, Martyn Healy; the Heart programme director, Francis Currie; and the Heart marketing director, Tina Finch, have all been made redundant as part of the move. Two new roles - head of marketing and London stations director - have been created and have yet to be filled.
