Communicorp Media's chairperson Lucy Gaffney said that Mr Myciunka brings a wealth of experience, which spans over 20-years across radio and media in Ireland and the UK, to the job. 

"He has led industry-changing innovations in every role he has held and, since joining the Communicorp team in 2017, Simon has been responsible for significant year-on-year growth, as well as leading the development and launch of AudioXi, our digital audio sales platform," she added.
