Academy awards more fellows
The Radio Academy has awarded two more fellowships, announced at the Radio Festival in Glasgow.
BBC Radio 4 controller Mark Damazer and GMG Radio Scotland's Jay Crawford both picked up their surprise award during the Gala Dinner in Glasgow last night.
Mark was awarded his new status by former BBC Radio 5 live boss Bob Shennan and was very happy with his award, thanking his close colleagues and family. Mark has been with the BBC since he joined the World Service as a current affairs producer in 1981.
GMG Radio Scotland programme director Jay Crawford was also pleasantly surprised by the award, saying he now has an answer for that question "What is the highlight of your radio career?". Smooth Radio mid-morning presenter Mark Goodier made the presentation, saying how passionate about Scotland and dedicated to radio Jay has been since day one.
