Myers pleased with Real awards

As reported on Friday, GMG Radio picked up a total of four awards at the Arqiva Commercial Radio Awards, which recognises industry excellence in all aspects of radio from production to presenting.

The day saw the Real Radio brand, which was conceived in Wales nearly six years ago, pick up the coveted ?Arqiva Gold Award? which the Guardian Media Group and GMG Radio?s Chief Executive John Myers extended to Scotland and Yorkshire in 2002.

Collecting the award John Myers said: ?A great award that acknowledges the wonderful achievements of our staff. We are delighted?.

Real Radio Scotland scooped the prestigious ?Station of the Year? award. The station, which launched only four years ago, has grown from strength to strength now attracting a weekly audience of 720,000 adult listeners. Real Radio Scotland?s Managing Director Billy Anderson commented: ?I?m delighted that we have hit the commercial radio top spot. However, we still need to keep our eye on the ball and continue to deliver a format that our listeners have grown to love?.

Real Radio Yorkshire picked up two awards, a first for news and a second for Radio Programme of the Year for its coverage of The Bradford City Fire: 20 Years After. James Rea, Real Radio?s News Editor said: ?News is at the heart of Real Radio and in the past year the team, made up of some of the best people in radio news has developed and broadcast some amazing stories?.

100.4 Smooth FM in the Northwest was also nominated for Station of the Year – a great title to hold for a station which is only two and a half years old.
