Campbell to leave Ofcom

Martin Campbell is to leave Ofcom at the end of this month, after ten years of working as an industry regulator.

He leaves his post of Chief Adviser for Radio to take some time away from the industry, after working in or around it for over 35 years.

Speaking to Radio Today, Martin explained that he won’t be disappearing altogether and he’ll still be involved with Ofcom, but he is also looking for new challenges as radio enters another defining period.

He told us: “Everyone knows I have a passion for speech and specialist radio. For ten years I presented daily phone-ins – and for four I was Managing Editor at Talk Radio. Maybe I’ll come across opportunities in that area. I'd like to think so. However, I’m taking some time away before doing anything strenuous.

“There’s no truth in the rumour that I’ll be presenting a rock’n’roll and skiffle show for 6 Music (although, come to think of it, that’s not such a bad idea…).”

Summarising his career so far, Martin continued to say: “I’ve seen plenty of changes… met some great people… and seen some truly innovative ventures. Radio is an industry that deserves to continue blossoming.”

Martin started his decade of being a regulator as Director of Programming and Advertising for the Radio Authority, then became Ofcom's Head of Radio and subsequently Chief Adviser, Radio.
