Global owns many of the UK’s biggest commercial radio brands, including Capital, Heart, Classic FM, Radio X and LBC. Its radio and digital platforms reach an average weekly audience of about 32m. Profits grew 61% to reach £83.1m in 2018, and the business launched an outdoor advertising division after acquiring Primesight and Outdoor Plus last September — reportedly for more than £200m — followed by the Top Track 250 alumnus Exterion Media two months later. It is led by founder and executive president Ashley Tabor, 42, and group chief executive Stephen Miron, 54.
