Laura appointed programme controller of Heart Yorkshire


Heart have appointed Scott’s former assistant producer Laura Busson as the Programme Controller for the station in Yorkshire.

Laura is best known for Laura’s Diary and One Night for Laura which both featured on The Scott Mills Show. She was a Broadcast Controller and Assistant Producer on Scott’s afternoon show for a number of years before producing Radio 1’s Chart Show with Fearne and Reggie, and working on the Greg James show.

She moved to Yorkshire last year with her husband James – who she (kind of) won in the One Night With Laura competition.

Heather Kane, Head of News and Programming at Communicorp UK, said: “We are thrilled to have Laura on board and joining the Heart Yorkshire programming team. She is an exceptional talent within the industry and I have no doubt that she will deliver some fantastic creative ideas and results for us as a station and as a group. The team is very much looking forward to giving her a warm welcome and I’m sure she will hit the ground running, fitting in perfectly with the rest of the guys.”

Laura Busson (aka Sayers) said: “”I leapt at the chance to join the Communicorp UK team, combining two of my greatest passions; radio and my home county, Yorkshire. I look forward to working alongside some incredible people and becoming part of the Heart family.”
