Life SRA membership for Tabor & Cooper

The Student Radio Association has awarded Honorary Life Memberships to four radio industry people, including Global Radio founder Ashley Tabor and BBC Radio 1 controller Ben Cooper.

The memberships are given to those who have made a considerable impact through their prolonged commitment to student radio and to the Association. Radio 1 presenter Greg James has also been honoured, along with the Radio Academy.

Ashley tweeted his appreciation from LA: “Thank you so much for the lifetime membership recognition – you guys do great work. #appreciated” and the Radio Academy were equally as pleased: “Amazing! Thank you very much, thanks for the support, and congratulations on what sounds like a brilliant #SRACon! (Is there a trophy?)”

SRA says: “Ashley has encouraged his staff to look to student radio for future talent, has always supported us as the SRA continues to grow, and we could not do so without his support.

“Ben has presented and attended numerous events and has worked to create new opportunities for students to get an insight into the BBC and the radio industry as a whole.”

Greg James started in student radio – he was Station Manager at Livewire 1350AM before winning Best Male at the Student Radio Awards 2005 and shortly after landing his gig at Radio 1. Last year he stood in as co-host of the Student Radio Awards with only a couple of hours notice after Nick Grimshaw fell ill.

Speaking about the Radio Academy, an SRA spokesperson said: “The Radio Academy have been constant supporters of student radio for years – they not only offer us a space to use when we need it and deal with all of our post but they offer free affiliate membership to all of our members, allowing them free or discount rates to their events.”
