Spire FM news editor Suzie Southgate has moved to GWR Group’s 2-Ten FM to take up the same role.
Working with the station’s programme controller, Tim Parker, Southgate will oversee a news team of three, covering Reading, Basingstoke, Newbury and Andover.
GWR Group head of news Simon Cliffe said: “This appointment is the latest in our commitment to provide original, emotive and relevant local news.
“In addition to her amazing voice and great reporting, Suzie has also displayed strong leadership skills.”
Southgate replaces Liz Gameson, who has been promoted to GWR area news leader for the South Midlands, overseeing news at Leicester Sound and Mercia in Coventry.
