Capital FM’s Digital Content Producer Cheyne Hewison becomes the latest entrant to the radio hall of fame with his introduction to Radio Academy’s 30 under 30.
Proudly sponsored by ReelWorld, 30 Under 30 is Radio Academy’s annual search for thirty of the brightest young talents across the Radio and Audio industry.
The 30 Under 30 gives young people in the industry a credible way to get recognition for their achievements. It means something to them and to potential future employers, and now so many of the alumni are now leading figures in the radio and audio industry.
Neil Sloan, Group Head of Programming and News Programming at CCUK had this to say about Cheyne’s achievement: “Cheyne is a key part of our Capital team, working daily on creating unmissable digital content for Scotland and South Wales, and it is fantastic that his hard work and talent have been recognised by the Radio Academy.”
Cheyne’s achievements have been felt across group and commercial level, with him producing high quality, on brand content that has both built and maintained Capital’s following in both Scotland and Wales. Cheyne has come to personify Capital’s programming and marketing ethos of #unmissable. His unyielding pursuit of the creative and the unexpected has earned him recognition from his peers and now the industry.
This achievement comes off the back of a continued push from CCUK to promote our emerging talent. With the company securing 2 stars in the Best Company Awards last month, the acknowledgement of our talent is another step towards 3 stars.
Grace Hannah, Director of People, has been an advocate for talent growth and had this to share on the news:
“Cheyne is a perfect example of the up and coming talent in our industry that we seek to find, keep and grow. Our culture breeds this kind of success which is creative, progressive and collaborative. We give our people their platform to perform, their canvas to create and the right level of autonomy to do what they do best. We are very proud of Cheyne.”
