Radio Academy West branch to celebrate local radio

An evening celebrating radio made in the West will take place in Bristol next week with a panel of local radio professionals.

The Radio Academy West branch has organised the event, and includes representatives from BBC, commercial, community and student radio.

Branch Chair Nick Bull told RadioToday: “Find out about the latest thinking – what makes great radio and the growing importance of digital content. Afterwards you’ll be able to chat to the panel and other key players in the industry across the West.”

It’s taking place at the BBC Bristol Club on Whiteladies Road on Wednesday 20th April (Gain entrance via back gate security on Belgrave Road). Arrive at 1830 for a prompt start at 1900.

Although this is a free event – you must book your place by emailing [email protected] before Tuesday 19th April.

It’s hosted by Heart breakfast’s Paulina Gillespie who started at the BBC in Wiltshire before being recruited by Heart [then GWR] for their new triple header Breakfast show. Paulina Paris and Ed have been presenting in Bristol and Somerset in total for 12 years.

The Panel is made up of:

Clare McGinn – Head of BBC Network Radio Production, Bristol.
