Sue Owen to become BBC Merseyside Editor

Curent BBC Radio Stoke Editor Sue Owen has been appointed as Mick Ord’s successor at BBC Radio Merseyside.

Sue makes the move after a decade at Stoke and a career in commercial radio before it, including 8 years at Heart in Birmingham.

She replaces Mick Ord, who announced last month that he was leaving the Liverpool-based station to take up a new BBC role in Salford.

Sue said: “BBC Radio Merseyside is an amazingly successful station that is part of the fabric of Merseyside, I feel privileged and excited about taking over the reins.”

Aziz Rashid, Head of BBC North West added: “I’m delighted to have such an experienced editor to run one of the jewels in the crown of BBC Local Radio – Sue’s record in community action and partnerships will be crucial for the continuing success of the station.”

Sue worked for 100.7 Heart FM in Birmingham before joining the BBC at Radio Stoke. Prior to that she worked at Radio Aire, BBC Radio York, Chiltern Radio, Hereward Radio and Radio Hallam.
