New Editor BBC Radio Wales

BBC Cymru Wales has announced Steve Austins as the new Editor of BBC Radio Wales.

He's been leading the station as Acting Editor since last summer, but finally takes control of the station on an official and permanent basis.

Steve joined BBC Wales in 1998 as a researcher for Radio Wales News, and soon after started producing the station’s flagship news shows Good Morning Wales and Good Evening Wales.

Before joining the BBC, Steve started his broadcasting career as a news reporter for Red Dragon FM and as a presenter on Galaxy 101 and Surf 107.2 in Brighton.

“I’m thrilled to be given the opportunity to lead Wales’ national English language station,” said Steve. “I grew up in a home where BBC Radio Wales was part of our daily routine so I understand what the station means to its listeners. It’s a very exciting challenge and I’m looking forward to it immensely.”
Steve takes up the role at a strategically significant time for the station, with a brief to build on current success and target new listeners.

BBC Cymru Wales Director Menna Richards: “Steve’s appointment comes at a challenging time for the media in Wales, but we have already seen that under Steve’s leadership, strong foundations are being laid to take the station forward as we plan for the future."
