The Week: People news - O'Dowd moves to Jazz FM

Jazz FM has appointed Robert O'Dowd, the former group enterprise director of the GWR Group, as its enterprise director.

O'Dowd will develop Jazz FM's off-air sales through CD releases, concerts and online music sales, which have accounted for more than 70 per cent of the station's revenue in the past. The radio station is set to launch on 6 October under a three-year licensing agreement between GMG Radio and The Local Radio Company.
