UKRD sign Simon Cowell?s brother

Brother of Pop Idol judge extraordinaire, Simon Cowell, is to be a panel judge for UKRD?s exclusive ?Source Summer Book Club Competition?.

Tony Cowell, who co-authored Simon Cowell?s autobiography in 2003, joins Bernard Cribbens, Ronan Keating, comedian Tom O?Connor, and former Magpie presenter Susan Stranks, together with Pop Idol finalists Journey South, in an eclectic line up of judges who will decide which child can write the best book review in no more than 100 words.

UKRD Group Programme Director, Phil Angell, told ?we have been running twice daily news updates for the 8-14 year old age range across all our radio stations for some months now and the idea of the book club came from giving our younger listeners something a little different to do in the summer holidays.?

?We?re thrilled that Tony Cowell and Journey South have come on board,? said Angell. ?Both Tony and I have been discussing a number of exciting opportunities in the months to come, and this is a great way of beginning what we hope will be a long term relationship. Tony also likes eating at Mr Chows in Knightsbridge which for me is a bit of a head start?.
