UTV resigns from RadioCentre

UTV Media, the parent company of national speech radio station talkSPORT, has resigned its membership of RadioCentre, the decision came into effect at the end of September.

In a statement, UTV made clear their increasing concern at what they saw as RadioCentre’s shift in direction when it came to representing the interests of the commercial radio industry especially concerning digital switch over.

Scott Taunton, Managing Director, UTV Media GB said: “I am genuinely disappointed to be standing down from the RadioCentre, not least given the great work carried out by the many talented and dedicated staff I have worked with at the industry body since its inception.

“Following the merger of GCap and Chrysalis, it is clear to me that the governance of the RadioCentre is no longer reflective of the wider industry interests, an issue which, despite considerable effort, I have been unable rectify.”

RadioCentre spokesman Andrew Harrison responded: "I would like to thank UTV for their contribution over the last few years and wish them well for the future."
