    BBC Radio 1’s noted DJ Zane Lowe is reportedly leaving the broadcaster next month to join Apple according to a report from BBC News. For those of you who didn’t know, Lowe has won a number of awards for his radio show and other work over the years. He was even nominated for a Grammy Award this year for his role in writing and producing Sam Smith’s album “In The Lonely Hour.” Zane had the following to say regarding the matter:

    I want to thank everyone at Radio 1 for their support and friendship. "The station has allowed me to share incredible music with the country's best music fans.
    BBC News reported the following regarding the matter:

    During his time on the station, the New Zealand-born DJ has become well known for championing emerging talent and many acts have made their breakthrough after having one of their tracks named as "hottest record in the world" on Zane's show.
    It hasn’t been publicly stated what role Apple will take on at Apple but the folks over at The Guardian did state that it will likely involve the company’s iTunes Radio streaming music service. His role will likely include more than iTunes Radio at some point with Apple currently working toward a revamp of the Beats Music subscription streaming service. It’s likely that he will help fold Beats into the iTunes brand and integrate the two with OS X and iOS.

    The move as a whole indicates that there may be some big changes headed towards iTunes Radio. We’ll have to wait and see how things progress.
