Austins appointed new editor of RadioWales.

STEVE AUSTINS has been appointed the new editor of BBC Radio Wales.

Mr Austins, 34, who is originally from Tredegar, has been leading Radio Wales as acting editor since last summer.

He joined BBC Wales in 1998 as a researcher for Radio Wales news, and was soon producing the station's flagship news shows Good Morning Wales and Good Evening Wales.

Mr Austins started his broadcasting career as a news reporter for Red Dragon FM and as a presenter on Galaxy 101 and Surf 107.2 in Brighton.

"I'm thrilled to be given the opportunity to lead Wales' national English language station," he said. "I grew up in a home where BBC RadioWales was part of our daily routine so I understand what the station means to its listeners. It's a very exciting challenge and I'm looking forward to it immensely."
