After more than a thousand editions, UK radio industry publication The Radio Magazine has suspended its publication and circulation for the second time.
The magazine was set up in the early 90s by Howard Rose, who died in 2002, and was most recently owned by Tindle Newspapers, operating out of Tindle Newspaper’s HQ in Bordon, Hampshire. In October 2011 it ceased being a weekly publication and had a temporary suspension of service. It later returned as a monthly magazine.
The last edition, to be made printed in May 2014, lists Karen Sheppard as Managing Director and Henry Ascoli as Editorial Manager. Henry confirmed to RadioToday in July that the magazine had been suspended for the second time and so far has failed to make a second comeback.
At its peak, The Radio Magazine was the must-read publication for the radio industry, full of exclusive news, jobs, gossip, advertisements, dates for your diary and of course, Rose’s Rambling by the much loved editor. It started as a one man operation produced on a small Amstrad computer and stapled by hand and sent out to stations and enthusiasts.
Any writer or advertiser who would like to continue reaching the radio industry is welcomed to contact RadioToday for an informal chat.
