Turpin will work alongside Dee Ford, managing director of EMAP Radio, and Travis Baxter, managing director of the Big City Network, to develop the group’s digital strategy.

His role is one of three new posts created in ECM division, which includes radio, specialist and lifestyle, which have been created to strengthen the group’s multimedia offering. It is still recruiting for the two other digital development roles.
