New York nominations for Clyde

Radio Clyde has just been announced as finalists in three categories of the New York Festivals 2005, the Radio equivalent to the movie Oscars.

The West of Scotland?s number one radio station will now compete for gold, silver or bronze medals when the glittering awards ceremony is held in Manhattan on 27th June.

Radio Clyde has been nominated in the following categories:

Best Breaking News Story – ‘The Maryhill Disaster’

Radio Clyde News for their coverage over four days of the Stockline Plastics Factory Explosion last year.

Best Music Special – Clyde 1’s ‘Justin Time’


PRODUCERS – Gavin Pearson + Siobhan Smith.

During 2003 and 2004 former N Sync star Justin Timberlake became the world’s most popular solo artist. 102.5 Clyde 1 was the official radio station of the Justified World Tour in Glasgow and was also the only radio station in Scotland to speak to the man on the tour. The hysteria surrounding Justin Week in Glasgow was captured in this hour long special, broadcast on Sunday 27th January 2004.

Best Drama Special – Clyde 2’s ‘Scrooge’

Produced by John MacCalman for Clyde 2 with the Mummers Theatre group. Clyde 2 captured the enthusiasm of a local amateur drama group known for their innovative and enterprising approach and allowed them to explore the possibilities that radio would give their creative energies. Their creative use of the medium brought the community into the heart of the radio station.

Radio Clyde Managing Director Paul Cooney told

?It?s great that Radio Clyde has again received recognition at the New York Festival. Reaching finalist status in three categories reflects the Station?s continuing success and its pursuit of broadcasting excellence to the highest level.?
