Ralph Bernard CBE gets the IRN Gold Award

The IRN Gold Award has been presented to Ralph Bernard CBE for an outstanding contribution to the commercial radio industry in a career spanning 35 years.

Ralph has enjoyed success as a radio executive but he first made his mark as a journalist. At Hallam FM in Sheffield, he produced commercial radio’s first networked documentary which earned him the head of news job at Peterborough’s Hereward Radio.

He went on to form GWR and helped bring about the merger with Capital Radio to create GCap Media. Under his leadership, Classic FM was born and he led it for 20 years as Chief Executive and subsequently, Chairman.

Ralph is currently the Chair of the Broadcast Journalism Training Council.


His award was given out as part of the IRN Award with Sky News event in London. For the full list of winners, click here.
