BBC Ulster named station of year

BBC Radio Ulster has been named Irish station of the year at the Phonographic Performance Ireland awards, as well as picking up five other accolades.

Stations from Northern Ireland have only been allowed to enter the competition for the last four years.

As well as bagging the Gold in the Full Service Station of the Year category, Radio Ulster's The Nolan Show picked up a Silver Award for the Current Affairs Programme of the Year.

The station also won four other awards for its music programming with Ralph McLean winning a Silver Award in the Specialist Music Broadcaster of the Year category, while Across The Line carried off a Bronze Award in the new Irish Music/Music Talent Programme category, Irish Language programme Blas took a Silver Award in the Craoltareacht le Gaelige category and the documentary Failed Christian, in which legendary Northern Ireland-born guitarist Henry McCullough talks candidly to Gerry Anderson about this life and career, won a Silver Award in the Music Special category.

Susan Lovell, Head of BBC Radio Ulster, said: "We are absolutely delighted with the awards BBC Radio Ulster has won and congratulate Stephen and his team, Ralph, the ATL and Blas teams and Gerry Anderson on their success. The awards are a testament to the thought, commitment and dedication which go into making our programmes."
