Good News from the UK Radio Industry

Bad news seems to travel fast and frequently, that's why here at The MYOB Show we love to share good news. Today is one of those days where we get the chance to share some really great news...

Radio legend John Myers released an autobiography earlier this year.

The book is called...

 Which is nice of course...

But what's the good news?

A percentage of the profits of the book are set to benefit three charities, each getting a share of ten thousand pounds (according to radiotoday.co.uk).

Now that's some of the best news to come out of the radio industry in many years.

Who will benefit?

"John is donating profits from the book to the Radio Academy, organisers of The Radio Festival and Radio Academy Awards, Radio Tyneside, where he is currently the Chair and The British Lung Foundation, in memory of John’s mother".


That great news not only for Radio Tyneside who do a brilliant job serving the hospital and local community in Newcastle and Gateshead.

 It's also great news for the Radio Academy who tirelessly and pretty much single handily offer nationwide training for newbies to the UK commercial radio industry. 

 The money generated by the book should enable The Radio Academy continue to help young up and coming talent get a foot on the media career ladder while also helping those already in the business progress further.
