How did your university do at the Student Radio Awards last night?

By Editor
How did your university do at the Student Radio Awards last night?

From gold to bronze, the accolades came in 1st, 2nd and 3rd places respectively, and there were some surprises along the way.

Supported by many radio outlets like BBC Radio 1 and Global, there was a definite buzz to the proceedings, which was hosted by Capital FM's Dave Berry and the Radio 1 Breakfast presenter Nick Grimshaw.

Of the winners, Nottingham's URN did very well with Izzie Clarke picking up the GOLD award for Best Female Presenter and the station itself won best station for the fifth year in a row.

Members of URN spoke to audioBoom on their success, which you can listen to here:

Sadly, though, they accidentally broke their award in sheer excitement. 


The gold award for best journalistic programming was awarded to Scratch Radio, of Birmingham City University, too, which was supported by Newsbeat and the best entertainment programme award went home with Nerve Media of Bournemouth University for a show hosted by students Sean Montague & Emily Sandford.
