    Is the station of the year (under 300,000) TSA really worth it anymore with all the networking… KLFM is total tosh these days (I live in their area) yet hardly any competition from other entrants. It makes a mockery of the Sonys as KLFM brand themselves as Best Company to work for (rubbish) and Sony award winning… laughable if you are a listener as we ask ourselves “IS THIS THE BEST IT IS IN THE UK?”. Before you ask, we have no choice as out here in the fields you only have KLFM or BBC….

    I am sure KLFM are nice people, but seriously!!

    Interesting to see ‘The New TFM’ nominated in the best station 1m+ category. ;)
    Good luck to the team at BBC Newcastle.

    @ Queen Lizzy ii;
    Impressive that you know more about UK radio and UK business than both the Sony judges and the Sunday Times.

    KL.FM won a Sony last year and has been nominated again this year. Total tosh?
    Not according to the group of some of the most respected people in the radio industry who comprise the Sony judges. Not according to the huge and loyal audience we have or our prize winners who have won thousands of pounds in the last year or the community organisations we give thousands of pounds worth of support to or the hundreds of less-fortunate kids we gave Easter Eggs to last week. Not according to the all of new listeners we’ve gained over the last couple of years and not according to our advertisers who continue to see great results from their campaigns. Do I need to go on?

    KL.FM didn’t invent the Best Companies award. The Sunday Times awarded KL.FM’s parent company UKRD the accolade of Best Company to Work For (3 years in a row). Is it rubbish? Perhaps it is, but then again, why would hundreds, if not thousands, of companies make the effort to take part? The answer, of course, is that it is one of the most prestigeous business awards in the country.

    No competition in the Station of the Year (under 300,000) category? 11 stations won a Nations & Regions award and were therefore eligible to be nominated. Let’s assume 3 or 4 stations entered in each region on average, so that’s at least 30 or 40 stations that put themselves forward.

    No choice about what to listen to in West Norfolk? Well apart from BBC national on FM and AM, BBC and commercial stations on digital, Kiss, Heart Norfolk and everything in the world via the internet, I suppose you are right.

    We are, indeed, nice people at KL.FM. You live in the area so why not give us a call and come and meet us. We can show you all the hard work, effort and skill that goes into winning a Sony award.

    And by the way, there is no networking on KL.FM except for the chart show.

    I’ve never heard of KLMF so I looked at your website. I don’t know whether it’s a very good radio station. Additionally, I am concerned at giving easter eggs to children when there is such a problem with obesity – why not a nice book token instead? Anyway, one thing I must say is that your Adam Newsted is a bit dishy and I would certainly let him jump my bones.
