The Radio Academy is the UK radio and audio industry charity, established in 1983. We are dedicated to the celebration and promotion of excellence in radio and audio.
We aim to bring together creative people from across the sector, breaking down barriers to provide opportunities for debate, networking, and celebration. We welcome members from all areas of audio, including broadcasting, podcasting, streaming, production and academia. We aim to have an extensive calendar of national and regional events, accessible to all – the highlights of our year are the ARIAs, The Radio Festival, and 30 Under 30. We are supported in our endeavours by individual memberships and corporate patronage.
The Radio Academy is an iconic body in the world of broadcasting, not just radio. It is a huge influence on the industry, inspiring and supporting the next generation and recognising those that have contributed their lives and passion towards creating the best in radio programming.
My first experience of the Radio Academy was being invited to attend the ARIAS. It was a chance to see all the major players of the industry gathered in one place, and we felt a sense of community that reflected the Academy’s rich membership base.
The Radio Academy is great at supporting people, through it, I’ve found countless opportunities to network and meet new contacts that has led to work.
The Radio Academy help to motivate, educate and entertain anyone who works in radio from hospital radio to BBC radio. In addition, the Radio Academy forms a community and a social group as it helps network with presenters and producers from all different radio backgrounds. I love The Radio Academy
