According to RadioHeads, a key driver of the new initiative is the appointment of Candy Dempers as the new managing director.

Dempers succeeds Lyndon Johnstone, who resigned after four years at the helm. Johnstone will take over as chairperson of the Board of RadioHeads, and has been appointed in the full-time capacity of CEO at Classic 1027.

Under Johnstone’s leadership, RadioHeads pioneered several innovations into the marketplace, such as the use of WhatsApp Voice Notes for on-air competitions (adopted by several commercial radio stations), wireless broadcast technology, which allows presenters to broadcast live.

Johnstone says, "It is down to the hard work of a dedicated team of people that RadioHeads has been profitable for the past years. I am excited to have Candy on board to take the business to new heights, with the help of sales director Justin Keats and a dedicated team of professionals," says Johnstone.

Dempers has 20 years of experience in the media industry, with 17 years in radio. Johnstone adds, "Candy specialises in programming and content integration strategies across multi-channel platforms."

"RadioHeads is a dynamic, evolving, forward-thinking company, and I’m excited about the new possibilities, extensions and value that we can bring to our clients’ campaigns and the innovations we are working on with the radio stations," says Dempers.
