Mark Jarvis, head of broadcast negotiations at Carat, has been

chosen to succeed Dave King as the independent’s broadcast director when

King leaves to become sales director at Emap On Air.



Carat’s chief executive, Mark Craze, said: ’Mark has tremendous respect

in the marketplace and this was a quick and easy decision.’ A leaving

date for King has yet to be finalised.



King’s resignation last week - after ten years with the company in

various guises and one-and-a-half years in the top broadcast position -

is said to have come as a surprise.



King, who moved to the buying side after selling airtime for Granada TV

and Ulster TV, will be charged with overseeing sales across all of

Emap’s radio stations. The role was formerly part the brief of managing

director, Tom Toumazis. King said he had not been looking to move but

when he heard about the job he could not refuse.
