• Apple Hires Producers from BBC Radio 1 to Help With Revamped Beats Music Service



    Music Business Worldwide has new reports that claim Apple has hired four producers recently from BBC Radio 1. The three new hires from BBC Radio 1 are Kieran Yeates, James Bursey, and Natasha Lynch. Just two months ago, the Cupertino-based company hired Zane Lowe, who also used to work at the British radio station. The report noted that Bursey was apparently Lowe’s previous producer at the radio station and worked at the British company for 12 years.

    Bursey is said to be on his way to Apple’s Los Angeles headquarters to work with Lowe for the company’s upcoming streaming music service. The other three new hires are apparently staying at the London office. It was noted that the new hires will begin working in May, after Radio 1’s One Big Weekend. Apple had apparently also reached out and wanted to hire someone from a music service similar to Beats Music and Spotify, called Deezer. James Foley was head of editorial at the streaming music service. It definitely seems like Apple is going the whole nine yards to make their revamped Beats Music better than before.
