Spire FM wins award, PC leaves

Spire FM's programme controller Stuart McGinley has announced he is leaving his position, just as the station is awarded the Nations and Regions Award for the south of England for the 2nd year running.

Stuart is leaving to take up a similar post at Tindle Radio's Town 102 in Ipswich at the end of the year. Stuart told RadioToday.co.uk: "I am delighted to win this award for the 2nd year running, I am really going to miss the team here and am extremely proud of my achievements here. I am looking forward to my challenge at Town 102 and this is the best possible leaving present for me!"

The judges, in awarding the title to the station, said: "This entry went beyond being simply local and informative, it was highly emotive, as demonstrated by their joint work with BFBS which brought real emotions to the radio. This is a radio station firmly rooted in its community with solid production and presentation it consistently shows it isn't afraid to be 'real'.

"There was a genuine sense of fun running throughout the submitted material. Spire FM is a vibrant station that really reflects the diversity of its area in it's output in both a respectful and positive way."
