Welcome to The Radio Academy

It's great to have you on board!

If you're reading this, it's because your lovely employer is a Patron of The Radio Academy. Our Patrons are companies and organisations that support our work all year round, by bulk-buying membership for all their staff, so that you can take advantage of absolutely free Radio Academy membership. All you need to do is activate your membership by using your company email address.

What are the benefits of being a Member?

You'll be joining a community of like-minded professionals around the UK, and then be able to take part in all our events and activities.  Many of these (especially at the moment) take place on our website.  Content on our website is growing all the time, and we will be archiving all our 2021 events on here for Members to consume at their leisure.  Right now, you can watch:

  • The Radio Academy Festival 2021 - more than 50 sessions of talks, interviews, panels and debates, including Jeremy Vine, Nile Rodgers, Dee Ford and Lorna Clarke (Nov 2020).
  • Race On Audio & Radio - four webinars about the experiences of our Black and South Asian colleagues, including major on-air talent and behind-the-scenes leadership (Aug/Dec 2020).
  • The Radio Academy AGM - meet the new Chair and Deputy Chair of the Radio Academy, and hear about our plans for 2021 (Dec 2020).
  • Women in Radio & Audio - a six week series of events championing women in our industry, to coincide with Internationla Womens Day (Mar 2021)

You will also be able to attend The ARIAS - the Audio & Radio Industry Awards, taking place in May 2021.  This is exclusive to Radio Academy Members.
