Who We Are

We offer opportunities for individuals working and interested in the Radio sector, be that in Podcasting, streaming, production, radio or academia - which allows for networking and connecting with peers.
Being a passionate group of people has allowed us to have an extensive calendar of National and Regional events. From award ceremonies to Q&A sessions with experts - we support all individuals who are involved in the industry.

We are supported in our endeavours by individual subscriptions, partnerships with companies and corporate patronage.

The Radio Academy helps with the what and who you need to know.
