Editor Steve Austins to exit BBC Radio Wales

Steve Austins has announced that he will step down from his role as Editor of BBC Radio Wales later in the Autumn.

He’s been at the station for over seven years and has taken a personal decision to leave: “It’s been an honour and a privilege to lead such a talented team for so long and I will miss the station terribly, but after our fantastic coverage of Wales’ Euro 2016 adventure, it felt like a perfect full stop for me,” he told RadioToday.

Director of BBC Cymru Wales Rhodri Talfan Davies said: “Steve has been a real creative force – in comedy, in music and in sport. And I don’t know anybody more passionate about radio. He has lived and breathed Radio Wales for seven years, and we all owe him a real debt of gratitude.”

Over the coming months, Steve will focus on supporting BBC Wales’s Senior team and the process to appoint his successor will begin immediately.

Steve started in radio at Red Dragon FM as a reporter in 1994 before moving to Galaxy 101 as a presenter. He joined the BBC in 1998 before working his way to the top of Radio Wales in 2009.

He recently appeared, along with Nation Radio’s Steve Simms, in our podcast, the RadioToday Programme, which you can hear below.
