Block sacked as 4fm boss

Martin Block has been removed as chief executive of 4fm, the multi-city easy listening station targeting over-45s, following a board meeting yesterday and Dave Hammond, the station’s sales and marketing director, has been appointed in his place.
Block, an independent radio veteran, and his brother, Howard, who was the station’s finance director up until his resignation earlier this year, jointly own a 22.5 per cent share in Fox Radio. The Blocks are to remain on as company shareholders.
Born in Ipswich, Martin Block is a former chief executive of Lite FM, which UTV bought for €15 million and rebranded as Q102. In the last JNLR, 4fm was found to have 95,000 listeners a week, with a one per cent market share.
