 Details about Expertise / Competences / Technologies
Professor Guy Starkey is a former radio practitioner who presented in a variety of regular programmes from breakfast to overnight, but mostly mid-morning, on the Voice of Peace, Radio Nova International, Radio West, BFBS Gibraltar, Beacon Radio, Marcher Sound, MFM and City Talk. He began in hospital radio, co-produced a documentary for Radio Four while a student and graduated from various management roles at University Radio Bath. From Senior Producer at Radio City, he went into teaching in 1991, running temporary student Restricted Service Licence radio stations until Utopia FM became the full-time community station 107 Spark FM. He has been closely involved in developing and assessing national qualifications for Edexcel, and his book Radio in Context (Palgrave Macmillan, 2004) combines practical instruction with underpinning knowledge of most aspects of production and presentation. Other publications include Balance and Bias in Journalism: Representation, Regulation and Democracy (Palgrave Macmillan, 2007) and Radio Journalism which he co-authored with Professor Andrew Crisell (Sage 2009). The Chair of the Radio Research Section of the European Communications Research and Education Association (ECREA), Guy is also a member of the steering committee of the Radio Studies Network within MeCCSA and Head of the Department of Media at the University of Sunderland.
