Honorary Life Membership is a type of membership that is awarded by the SRA as a whole to people who have given up their time to improve and contribute to our events and activities. It is a way of saying thanks to those individuals who have done so much for us over the years.

The SRA Executive and Officers decide on up to 4 individuals a year and the membership agree on the decision at the Annual General Meeting.


This years Honorary Life Members are:

Vicki Blight
Vicki has shown support to the Student Radio Association over a number of years: speaking at the conference and at training days, participating in Demo Factor, and taking part in the awards judging process. Always keen to offer her advice and support, she is a staunch supporter of Student Radio.

Matt Hurst
Matt’s involvement with the Student Radio Association started when he was elected as Development Officer in 2006. Since then he has held the position of Finance Officer and more recently Finance Manager. Matt has held the organisation together through many challenges, often staying in the background. He has extensive knowledge and experience of the organisation and is always willing to go above and beyond to help and advise the Exec and members alike.

Huw Stephens
As Chair of the Student Radio Awards for three years, Huw brought an energy and passion to the event which was unprecedented. He has also been involved in awards judging and has made appearances at the National Student Radio Conference. Nothing has ever been too much trouble for Huw, and he has encouraged student radio music lovers from across the country to contribute to his Radio One show.

Jonathan Jacob
JJ has played a key role in delivering the Student Radio Awards for the last two years. As Production Manager for the event, he has spent a great deal of time liaising with suppliers, co-ordinating the ceremony and generally ensuring that the night runs smoothly. JJ has brought a huge amount of passion and experience to the event, and his positive approach has made him a delight to work with.
