Birthday Honour for ex-radio boss Findlay

A number of radio people and broadcasters have been honoured in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List 2013, including ex-SRH boss Richard Findlay.

richardfindlayThe Scottish Radio Holdings chief exec was honoured with a CBE for services to the Arts and Creative Industries in Scotland. Richard built SRH into one of the UK’s biggest radio groups with 22 stations at one point, which was later sold to Emap.

He stepped down at SRH in 2004 and started his own media company with his son, Adam Findlay to buy Wave 102 from UTV in 2007.

Other honours include former Radio 2 Good Morning Sunday presenter Aled Jones, for services to Music and Broadcasting and for charitable services.

Clare Balding, recently in the public eye due to her television work covering the Olympics, has been awarded an OBE for services to Broadcasting and Journalism. Clare started her career at BBC 5 live and at one point read the sport on Chris Evans’ Breakfast Show on BBC Radio 1.

Now Clare hosts Good Morning Sunday on BBC Radio 2, having taken over the show from Aled Jones.

Rob Brydon, whose media career started on BBC Radio Wales, now better known for his television work but still appears on BBC Radio 2 and 5 live occasionally, got an MBE.

And television presenter Harry Gration, who started out at Radio Leeds and Radio Humberside, was also honoured.
