Room named after brmb presenter Ross

Birmingham radio presenter Les Ross has officially opened the “Les Ross Room” at Orion Media’s brmb on Broad Street.

The room, one of the station’s meeting spaces for clients and guests, has been refurbished and decorated in memorabilia stretching back over the station’s nearly four decades on air.

Many of Les’ awards are also on display, including a Sony Gold and the international “Premios Ondas” award.

Commenting on the naming of the room, Orion CEO (and one-time on-air colleague of Les) Phil Riley said: “We are really proud of brmb’s heritage, and wanted somewhere to showcase all of the good things the station has done during its history. When it came to giving the room a name, it could only have been Les Ross. He epitomises everything brmb has stood for over the years – humour, localness, fun and a real sense of Brummie spirit. He is without doubt the biggest radio star Birmingham has ever had, and we’re proud he spent the majority of his career here at brmb.”
