MD for TalkSport

TalkSport, the flagship national radio station of the Wireless Group, has appointed its first managing director.

Michael Franklin, a former managing director of London station LBC and finance director at Southern Radio, has more than 15 years’ experience in the radio industry. He joined TalkSport as operations director in August 2000.

A Wireless Group spokesman insisted the appointment did not herald the advent of a less hands-on approach to the station from Kelvin MacKenzie, the group’s chairman and chief executive, who attributed “much of TalkSport’s recent financial success to the clever manner in which Mike has approached his job”.
