The company has appointed Fuzz Chaudhrey from her current role as head of radio at Caroline International to the new role of producer at Wisebuddah. Chaudhrey has six years’ experience of music promotion and over 14 years in the music industry.
The Radio 1 Indie Show with Jack Saunders runs from 11pm-1am, Monday to Thursday. Executive producer Clare Chadburn and assistant producer Bradley Duggan will work alongside producer Chaudhrey.
Chaudhrey said: “I’ve been privileged to help break bands such as The Amazons and Glass Animals, and with the likes of Stereo Honey, HMLTD, Another Sky and Yonaka all breaking through it’s an incredibly interesting time for indie/alt music right now. I’m passionate about helping new bands really achieve their potential and I’m really excited about working with Jack and the team.
“I’m delighted to be joining the brilliant team at Wisebuddah – we have some big plans for Jack’s show and are really looking forward to discovering the best new talent around and working with the industry to do so.”
