Radio Glamorgan remains as one of the Top 10 hospital radio stations in the UK.
Recognised by the Hospital Broadcasting Association, the annual ceremony recognises the work that goes on at stations across the country.
At the awards evening held in Stoke-on-Trent last weekend, we were highly commended in the Top 5 in two categories, Best Programme with Multiple presenters (Teenage Cancer Trust Takeover) and Special Event (NHS 70 Bed push)
For the first time, the special event category had 3 stations from Wales in the Top 5, including Radio BGM based at the Prince Philip Hospital in Llanelli. They took home the Silver award, their first piece of glassware in their history.
We were also commended in the station promotion category and male presenter category.
The team at the awards also honoured the late John Wilce, by having a framed photograph of him on the table accompanied by a welsh bow-tie.
New Radio Glamorgan Chair, Jamie Pritchard said:
“The HBA awards recognise all that’s great about Hospital Radio and we’re thrilled to be in the top 10 once again for 2019. It cements the team work and dedication of all of our volunteers, who give up their time to present shows and help the profile of the station grow within the communities we serve”
