Travel.Radio appoints travel expert Paul Charles to present new weekly show

We’re proud to announce that Travel.Radio, the global, digital radio station has signed up Paul Charles, our CEO and founder of The PC Agency, as presenter of a new weekly programme, FlightDeck.

FlightDeck, to be broadcast every Sunday at 10 am, will feature in-depth interviews with the leading movers and shakers in travel and tourism around the world and include the favourite songs they listen to while travelling.

Paul is no stranger to broadcasting having been a presenter and reporter for BBC TV and Radio for 10 years before working in the travel sector. He presented on programmes including BBC Radio 4’s Today, PM, Financial World Tonight, MoneyBox, Inside Money, as well as BBC 1’s Business Breakfast and BBC World’s World Business Report.

After leaving the BBC, Paul became Communications Director at Eurostar, helping to rebuild the company’s brand and image, and opening the UK’s first high-speed trainline. He also co-ordinated the unique ‘The Da Vinci Code’ train media launch with Sony Pictures from London to Cannes.

Paul was then asked by Sir Richard Branson to be his Communications Director at Virgin Atlantic in 2006, responsible for global route launches, corporate and crisis communications.
