Rich Clarke replaces Annie Mac as SRA Chair

Former Capital FM and Big Top 40 presenter Rich Clarke is taking over from Annie Mac as Chair of the Student Radio Awards.

Rich, who now co-hosts Heart Breakfast on the South Coast, follows in the footsteps of Steve Lamacq, Huw Stephens and Jo Whiley, marking the first representative from commercial radio to take up the helm of Chair.

The Student Radio Awards take place this Thursday evening in London and are supported by BBC Radio 1 and Global.

Rich comments: “I started my career setting up a student station so it is a total honour to be part of something that celebrates the best of student radio. I have had so many opportunities because of student radio and I am proud to now chair the awards that will discover the future stars of our industry.”

Stu Manton, Chair of the Student Radio Association added: “It’s incredibly exciting to have a presenter as talented as Rich supporting student radio and the Student Radio Awards. As a previous SRA Executive Officer, it’s great to welcome Rich back and it’s indicative of how many across the industry are keen to celebrate their student radio roots. We are thrilled to have Rich on board and we’re sure he will do a great
job.”

Continuing, he said: “We should also take a moment to say a huge thank you to Annie Mac, for her role as Chair of the Awards since 2011. She has been an incredible Chair, always approachable, supportive and up for anything. We wish her the very best, and hope she stays in touch!”
