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
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.
