Chorley FM announces appointment of a new Business Development Manager

Nathan Hill

Nathan Hill has been appointed Chorley FM’s new business development manager, to ensure that the radio station has better engagement with small and mediums sized businesses in Chorley and South Lancashire.
Nathan brings 12 years of experience and knowledge in the community radio sector and has previously held a board role at Chorley FM. He is also one of the founding board members of neighbouring community radio station, 103.5 Beyond Radio, which is based in Lancaster and launched in 2016. Nathan now has responsibility for the development of Chorley FM’s business to business activity and he will be particularly highlighting how radio can support the growth of the local business community.
Speaking about his new appointment, Nathan said: “I’m really looking forward to getting out and about across the Chorley borough and meeting local business owners, since I’m keen to develop a network of local businesses to work collaboratively with, in order to achieve mutually beneficial commercial opportunities.
“I’m an advocate of the power of community radio. It’s different from commercial radio. Community radio is all about working with members of the local community who really understand the needs of the area in which they live and work.”
Donna Beckett, Chorley FM’s Managing Director, added: “It’s the first time we’ve appointed someone into this revised role and it’s a great opportunity to build on Chorley FM’s well-established successes. We’re confident that Nathan really understands both the community radio sector and the challenges of small to medium-sized business in a locality such as Chorley. We look forward to him introducing and developing some exciting new revenue generating ideas.”
