North West radio folk invited to MediaCity
People working in radio across the North West of England are being invited to a special Radio Academy session at the new home of 5 Live and Radio Manchester in Salford.
The event – on the evening of Tuesday 4th October – will include a panel discussion about what MediaCity means for radio as well as a chance to look at the BBC’s new facilities.
As well as 5 Live and the local radio service for Greater Manchester, other network radio programmes such as Radcliffe and Maconie on BBC 6 Music are also about to make the move from the corporation’s Oxford Road studios in Manchester to the new home on Salford Quays.
The ‘Welcome to MediaCityUK’ event is open to members of the Radio Academy, with membership free for anyone working for one of the patrons of the Academy.
John Ryan, BBC Radio Manchester Managing Editor and Chair of the North West Branch of the Radio Academy, said: “With lots of new radio people landing in the North West, the local branch of the Academy is back with a whole range of new events, starting with a look at MediaCityUK itself. After six years of planning, it’s finally here, joining GMG stations across the water and a new indie radio scene in the region. This is a chance to see inside the BBC’s main ‘live’ building, Quay House and to ask what MediaCity means for UK radio.”
