Who’s behind Amazing Radio?
It’s a new company called The Amazing Media Group, based in Newcastle upon Tyne. Its founder Paul Campbell is an award-winning media entrepreneur who used to make radio & TV programmes for the BBC and elsewhere before he worked in new media. He’s also a musician. There’s a small team of clever people who are passionate about music, about breaking the mould and getting this right. The company is supported by a small number of high net worth investors, most of them based in the north of England, who believe amazing should become a global brand.
