Greg Lambert joins Beyond Radio board

Greg Lambert, formerly content editor of The Visitor and Lancaster Guardian, has joined the board of Lancaster and Morecambe’s community station Beyond Radio as a non-executive director.

Greg worked for Lancaster and Morecambe Newspapers from 2002 to 2017, originally as entertainment editor of The Visitor, then as The Visitor's chief reporter and later as content editor for both The Visitor and Lancaster Guardian.

He is also known locally as a host and presenter of events including the Morecambe Carnival Saturday Main Stage and The Visitor’s annual Sunshine Awards at the Midland Hotel, and will host the upcoming An Evening with the Eden Project at the Platform. Greg is also on the organising committee for Morecambe Music Festival.

Greg has been part of Beyond Radio since its launch in 2016 as host of the weekly Tuesday night show ‘The Resident’. Previously Greg was a presenter on Lancaster’s former community radio station Diversity FM.

Greg said: “Beyond Radio plays a vital role in the local area where I have lived all my life. I look forward to helping Beyond Radio to continue to grow and provide a thriving community radio station for Lancaster and Morecambe.”

Steven Normyle, managing director of Beyond Radio, said: "Beyond Radio has exceeded all of our expectations and proven the important value and benefit that local radio, delivered locally and by local people brings to communities such as our richly diverse district. Greg is a highly respected member of our team and has been committed not only to the work of the station, but to our local community for many years.
