Apr 09, 2019, 09:08 PM

He rose from the ranks of hospital radio to run a national commercial station – and be part of the BBC strategic team which established the Corporation’s current direction. 

In this hour of #Radiomoments ‘Conversations’, Paul Robinson tells of his early days on-air at Metro, a station which told him his presentation was ‘too glossy', to an enjoyable spell down the road at Radio Tees. He shares his Mercia days and then the management spell at Chiltern’s growing group before graduating to the post of Managing editor at Radio 1 -and then on to the BBC’s strategic arm. Paul tells of the challenges at a troubled Talk Radio and about his life beyond.

Amidst some decent pointers on people management and leadership - this is Paul Robinson - in his own words.
