Radio Academy Awards and Festival cancelled

There’ll be no Radio Academy Awards or Radio Festival in 2015 following a strategic review at the organisation, which also sees the Academy office closing.

Instead, a new unannounced event will take place most, likely in London, designed to ‘celebrate and reflect the radio industry in a dynamic and modern way’.

Ben Cooper, Chair of the Academy, said: “I’m confident and determined that as an industry we can create an exciting and modern event that retains the gravitas of over 30 years of Awards.”

The Radio Academy is run by the BBC, Global, Bauer, UTV, RIG and Radiocentre who are all aligned in their ambition to create the new event. The Executive Unit, home to four full time staff, will close in its current form at the end of the year with all staff being made redundant.

The Radio Production Awards and Arqiva Hall of Fame Lunch will continue, but it’s likely the Radio Festival will be merged with the new single event.
