243 local and three national commercial radio stations, has promoted

Julie McCatty to chief press officer following the departure of Tracey

Mullins to become press and PR manager at the British Film

Institute.



McCatty has been the authority’s press and information officer since

1995. She took up her new position this week.



The Radio Authority is responsible for issuing licences, including those

for multiplexers, who will co-ordinate digital services; restricted

service licences; and long-term restricted service licences - given to

organisations such as hospitals. It also deals with issues of

regulation, and complaints from members of the public.



McCatty now has responsibility for communicating the authority’s

licensing and regulatory decisions and policies to the media,

opinion-formers, radio industry and the public.



She will head a team of two, although her replacement as press and

information officer has not yet been found. McCatty reports directly to

the chief executive, Tony Stoller.
