Former MediaCityUK chief joins Amazing

THE former head of business development at MediaCityUK - the new home for the BBC in Manchester - has joined The Amazing Media Group to spearhead the Newcastle-based firm’s business media division.

Jason Legget, who was made redundant from Peel Media last year, has been given a broad brief at Amazing.

He will be charged with growing the existing team and revenues, as well as overseeing the firm’s main product offering, Amazinginstore.

This is a virtual radio and music service for firms such as retailers, hoteliers, leisure companies and charities.

It offers them a library of around 35,000 original songs which are exempt from conventional licensing processes - in a bid to save clients money and generate sales for artists.

Jason Legget, who prior to MediaCityUK worked at the NWDA, said: “Working in the North West was great and I have met some inspirational business people, but the opportunity to work with Paul (Campbell, Amazing founder and CEO) again and return to Newcastle to run Amazing Business Media was an opportunity too good to turn down.”
