Our very own Fly FM has topped the Student radio awards nominations and has been nominated for nine awards this year.
The nominations included ‘Best Station’, ‘Station Sound’ and also receiving three nominations for ‘Best Specialist Music Programming’ (Jack Saunders, Will Metcalf and Temi Jonah).
Last year the station received five nominations, including Claire Chambers, who won bronze for ‘Best Female’ and Tom Watts, silver for ‘Best Male’, they have now gone on to present their own show on Capital East Midlands. Definitely proving that big things can definitely happen to those involved with student radio.
These awards are hugely important to student radio, they are judged by industry professionals from across the BBC and other commercial radio.
Fly will find out if they have won any awards on 7 November.
