Radio Academy restructures

The UK's Radio Academy has announced some radical changes that will see the axing of its two key events - the Radio Festival and Radio Academy Awards (for most of its history know as the Sony Awards) - and the axing of its London office and staff of four. It seems that the loss of Sony as a headline sponsor of the annual awards show triggered  a "strategic review" but BBC Radio 1's Ben Cooper, who is Chair of the Academy, said: "I'm confident and determined that as an industry we can create an exciting and modern event that retains the gravitas of over 30 years of Awards".
