Radio’s new golden girl

Rising fast in the media firmament is Emma Barnett, former Manchester King David Primary School pupil and Habonim summer camper and now digital media editor of the Daily Telegraph.

Last year, she was the Association of Online Publishers’ digital journalist of the year.

Now she has just been named “newcomer of the year” in the Arqiva Commercial Radio Awards for her drive-time Sunday afternoon show on LBC.

A former chairman of the UJIA’s Jewish media network, she still has time for some charity work with Norwood.
