"The Radio Academy, a community of people who share a love, passion and career in all things audio and our mission is to help, support, inform, connect and celebrate all of these wonderful people. We are independent, draw people from the whole sector and we'd dearly love you to join our community and help us in our mission"
Roger Cutsforth, Chief Executive, The Radio Academy.
Established in 1983, The Radio Academy is a registered charity membership organisation, which operates under the direction of a board of Trustees.
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.
"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"
"Thank you Radio Academy for letting me learn more radio skills. Having opportunities to communicate with radio experts. Go Radio Academy!"
