University Hospital’s very own radio station – Coventry Hospital Radio – has been shortlisted for four awards at the forthcoming Hospital Broadcasting Association’s annual Gala Weekend.
Five presenters from the station have been shortlisted in three categories, with a Gold, Silver and Bronze award available in each:
Best Station Promotion – Choose A Request (created by Lee Baker).
Best Programme with Multiple Presenters – Colin and Annette’s Music Set (presented by husband-and-wife team Colin and Annette Gutteridge).
Best Male Presenter – Andrew Colby and Dan Sambell.
Andrew and Dan will be vying for the top award. Dan is no stranger to winning in this category, having taken home the Bronze award in 2016.
Coventry Hospital Radio was founded in 1972 and is currently managed by a committee and is run by a dedicated team of 38 members – all volunteers.
The schedule produces 111 hours of presenter-based shows per week (including 52 hours of live shows).
Award winners will be announced at a special ceremony in Stoke On Trent on Saturday, March 30. Good luck to those nominated.
