RadioNewsWeb is the brainchild of John Sutton and Keith Hayes
It was created because we felt the web lacked a good
site for intelligent discussion of radio and radio issues despite the
proliferation of broadcasts on the web and the tremendous opportunities
which the web potentially offers for radio. As we worked on it,
we realised that there wasn't all that much on the web in terms of radio
analysis at all and a woeful lack of references in most general media
except when there was gossip, scandal, or a business story.
.We took inspiration from many sites and colleagues.
In particular we wish to mention -- Arts
and Letters Daily (went under 2002) and Scitech
Daily plus TV
Newsweb.com - also now out of business ) run by ex-WTN
(Worldwide Television News) colleague, Ken Herron.
has broadcast on radio and television in both the United Kingdom and North America.
He started his career in Vancouver with the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation in radio and television. Keith then moved via radio station CKVN( (later CFUN) to CJOR where he was news director.
He returned to his native Britain in 1973 as head of news at BRMB in Birmingham as commercial radio opened up in the UK. He briefly joined the BBC at Pebble Mill in Birmingham before going to Northern Ireland with Radio Ulster (BBC). There he produced both current affairs and light entertainment programmes.
From senior newsreader at Ulster Television, he moved on to start Northern Ireland's first independent production company before returning to London as senior producer at European Business Today, satellite television's first daily business programme. At Reuters television (Visnews) he edited a number of business programmes such as Financial Report, a weekly review seen in over 80 countries and was London anchor for PBS's Morning and Nightly Business Reports.
He is presently news editor at on-line television service efdex but retains strong interests in Radio Caburn a small regional radio station in the Sussex town of Lewes.
