Entries open for Hospital Radio Awards

Entries have opened for this year’s National Hospital Radio Awards with two new categories available for stations and presenters.

Lincs FM’s Director of Programme Sean Dunderdale and Iain Lee, the Deputy Chairman of the Hospital Broadcasting Association are for a sixth year producing the awards, with the ceremony being held as part of the HBA Annual Conference in Blackpool next March.

The two new categories this year include Fundraiser of the Year and Best Programme with Multiple Presenters.

Sean told Radio Today: “We’ve always wanted to recognise more than just those who work on air in hospital radio. Around the UK there are many volunteers who never step near a microphone, yet help keep stations on air. We felt, given fundraising is such an important role – especially given the current economic climate – that it would be only right we recognise the amazing fundraising involving in hospital broadcasting. Our experience over the previous five award ceremonies we’ve run shows there was no entry for those programmes that consist of more than one presenter so felt that too was a part of hospital radio worth recognising.”

The deadline for entries is Friday December 14th for postal entries, with an additional week available until Dec 21st for online entries.

The full list of categories are:

  • Station of the Year
  • Male Presenter of the Year
  • Female Presenter of the Year
  • Best Programme with Multiple Presenters
  • Best Specialist Music Programme
  • Best Special Event
  • Best Speech Package
  • Best Station Promo or Trailer
  • Best Newcomer
  • Fundraiser of the Year
  • John Whitney Award

You’ll be able to see live coverage of the awards via Radio Today Live with Arqiva on March 23rd 2013.
