Presenter Janice Long made Honorary Friend

BBC Radio 2 presenter Janice Long has been made an Honorary Friend of the Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts.

Janice was handed the honor by Sir Paul McCartney at an event on Merseyside last week, for her passion of new music and encouraging and supporting new artists.

“It is fantastic to be honoured by LIPA, I am very proud. It was great to catch up and an honour to receive my award from Paul McCartney who now refers to me as Dame Janice! A further privilege to be among such illustrious company,” Janice told RadioToday.

Janice will soon be starting a new after midnight slot on BBC Radio 2, four nights a week, after cost-cutting at the station.

The Liverpudlian worked on BBC Radio 1 in the eighties, moving on to television via Top of the Pops. She joined BBC GLR in 1989 then BBC Radio Five. She helped XFM secure a full time licence and set up her own station, Crash FM (now Juice) in Liverpool.
