The recently streamlined Radio Academy has appointed a new Managing Director in the form of Roger Cutsforth, who has had a long career in commercial radio, most recently at Global Radio.

Confirming the appointment, the Academy’s Chair Chris Burns told reporters: “I am delighted to announce this week that Roger Cutsforth is to become the Radio Academy’s new Managing Director. Roger currently works at Global and brings to the role a love of the industry and a passion for the ‘Creative Led Sell’. Roger will take up his new post in mid July and I know he can’t wait to get started. I think he is a great appointment for the Academy and I am really looking forward to working with him”.

Cutsforth will be charged with the task of rebuilding the Radio Academy as an organisation with “learning and networking” at its core, it having closed its London office and axed its two big events, the Radio Festival and Radio Academy Awards, late last year. News on a smaller replacement annual conference is expected this week.
